HOME CONNECTION: This past week we have heard some very interesting oral presentations about water issues around our globe. From innovations such as recycling showers and balls that "create" water, to environmental disasters such as oil spills, to growing concern over issues such as flushing of pharmaceuticals, global warming, and lack of basic sanitation on a worldwide scale, we have been educated and entertained! Well done! Please speak with your son/daughter about these presentations.
Below is an interesting short video that we saw early this week about how the flushing of pharmaceuticals affects our water supply and our environment.
Here is another clip from one of the cool community service projects that students in 8M are organizing. Stay tuned for details!
