I've been substitute teaching at North Ogden Junior High for several years, and I don't think I've done anything as neat as what we did yesterday for EARTH DAY!   Working in conjunction with the city, the students walked or traveled by school bus to all the parks in the city, as well as the Aquatic Center, and performed what would turn out to be about 1200 man-hours of work--painting the field house, bowery tables and chairs.  They also  painted over an old Olympics mural.  They distributed SEVERAL yards of  mulch,  weeded, planted flowers, picked up garbage, swept curbs, and screened the ball diamond.  Grow boxes in the new COMMUNITY GARDENS were filled with top soils, and mulch was spread throughout the area.  It was a lot of work, and the students really came through!  Students who didn't travel, stayed at the school and filled sand bags, for the city emergency supply. The kids worked fast and hard, and MUCH was accomplished!  They're GREAT!

  1. What a neat day of service for the earth and community! Sounds like a great day and memorable experience for the kids. Had no idea you were a substitute teacher, that is fun.
