Students at Memorial Middle School raised over $900 to plan an Earth Day Celebration at the end of last month. With that money, they bought flowers, fill dirt, mulch, and a bird feeder. The bird feeder will be a project the special education department takes care of for the rest of the year.
The students also plan to donate a large portion of the money toward a memorial for their classmate, Stevie Ray, who passed away earlier this year. The students worked hard on this project and they are proud of their efforts to help make their community a better place.

They will have great apps for when your child is on the device and ideas on how to get them off the device.
