DAVENPORT — On Earth Day, April 22, All Saints Catholic School’s Go Green group hosted the fourth annual campus-wide grounds clean up.
Three years ago, with assistance from All Saints teacher and Go Green Advisor Elise Ward, All Saints’ students had officially adopted the entire block surrounding their school through Scott County Waste Commission’s “iLiveHere” program. Having pledged to host a minimum of bi-annual clean ups, students organized a spring cleanup on Earth Day.
The weather was perfect for being outdoors and cleaning up the trash, other debris, leaves and branches, Ward said. The seventh- and eighth-graders in the Go Green group led the charge of students wielding trash tongs, gloves and iLiveHere recycled pick-up bags.
Trash-pickers included pre-schoolers through eighth-grade students, teachers and staff.
