No More Poop!

Well, maybe. Thanks to the hard work of some former CPE Room 15 kids, we finally have some dog waste stations set up around campus. For years, 4th and 5th graders have been navigating around manure mines left by local dog walkers. Remembering their own experience dodging doo doo during the CPE fitness run, Crater students Hailee Hackworth, Kara Bender, Jonathan Jacuinde, and J.J. Elias decided to tackle the problem for their community service project. After getting funding approval from the CPE Student Body, they held an art contest to create the signs–which was won by 5th graders Jaime Sandberg and Shayla McDonald. They convinced a private business–Southern Oregon Signs–to donate their services. And they got the City of Central Point to provide guidance and to install the kiosks. Let’s just hope the community responds by utilizing the baggies and trash cans!  See the Mail Tribune story and video by clicking here!

This project was especially enjoyable for Mr. Lewis because he got to work with three generations of current and former students, including Mariah, one of his kids from his days at Sams Valley Elementary.
