Students strive to inspire caring for creation


The students at St. Paul’s take their commitment to care for the environment seriously. They recycle paper, cardboard, plastic and cans and work with Living Lands and Waters (an organization that works to preserve rivers and their watersheds).

But students also do positive role modeling by teaching in the school K-8 classrooms, hosting Earth Day activities, making presentations to the school board and parish council, and working on a plan to give up the use of plastic bags, which are not biodegradable.

Students’ three-year plan has turned into a full-day Environmental Conference filled with fun activities and motivational speakers for all ages with the goal of inspiring students to help conserve and renew the environment.
