For the second year in a row, Grade 5-8 students from Rama Central P.S. are helping local residents protect their homes from spring flooding, caused by a combination of greater than average snowfall, a sudden melt and rainfall. A public works employee told me that water levels in our area are expected to start peaking on the weekend.
This afternoon older students, including the Grade 5 students in our class, walked to the public works yard and filled sand bags. Our work will spare local residents the effort of of having to fill the bags they need themselves.
Thank you to our librarian, Mrs. Torrey, for arranging this community service opportunity for students in our school!
Here are some images of Grade 5 students in our class at work this afternoon (click on any photo to enlarge it):
