On Monday, April 20, 2009, a group of 3rd and 5th grade students from Lawrence Elementary School volunteered to pick up trash along Kaplan drive across from the school. Mrs. Gaboury, a 3rd grade teacher at Lawrence and Mr. Biernat, a parent volunteer took the students to help clean up this area in Middletown to celebrate Earth Day.
We would appreciate it if you would include this in your paper. We love to hear about the positive things happening in our community and were so please that these students so enthusiastically did their part to "clean up the earth". The above note was submitted by a 5th grade student, Arianna Biales.
