EverGreen Elementary students Kayla Oddo and Phoebe Schmitt have founded a new club in third grade. The students created the “Kiddie Litter Club” to keep the school playground area beautiful. Kayla and Phoebe are recruiting other students to help them pick up any stray litter they find while playing outside, and encouraging others to do so. “We want to help the environment, and keep it safe for animals,” Oddo said. “And we want to have a nice place for students to play,” added Schmitt.
Kayla also initiated a “Good Things for Life” suggestion canister in her classroom. She decorated a can and asks students to submit their suggestions on how kids can help keep their environment clean and safe.
Schmitt enjoys art and baking. She recently made Red Velvet cupcakes from scratch for her classmates.
