Walk-a-Thon Saves Acres of Rain Forest, Gallons of Water

June 15, 2012

from Holy Cross 4th-grade teacher, Mrs. Gittinger –

Holy Cross fourth-grade scientists don’t just ‘talk the talk’.  NO WAY!  These young activists ‘walk the walk’.

In keeping with Catholic Social Teaching by Caring for God’s Creation, these young scientists participated in a walk-a-thon to raise money for The Earth’s Birthday Project.

The students raised over six hundred dollars and received a certificate of recognition for their efforts.  This year the funds raised helped preserve precious acres of Peruvian rain forest and protect gallons of water in the thirsty rivers of the SW region of the United States.

These fourth graders proudly carry on the fourth grade tradition of applying what they learn in science and religion to make a difference.

Way to go HCS fourth grade!
