Taking Action

Our 4th-grade students were inquiring about conservation of our natural resources in one of their units. They wanted to bring awareness to their own community so they reached out to the City of Mcallen. The students ended up partnering with Mcallen Public Works to create a painted mural on one of the school's water drainages. The end goal was to remind the community of the effects water pollution can cause to all living organisms and that one way to help prevent or reduce this is by only allowing rain to go down our drains.
