We are the Pier Park Urban Park Rangers! Mrs. Sorensen's 4th grade students at Dodge Elementary School researched and created a JR Park Ranger booklet for our park in the hopes that by doing this project it will encourage people to go outside, keep parks clean, and help people get along! You can view it on our community map here: GIPS Roots & Shoots - https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1xYla-fXlf70pm8FpJOelWT4JUIk&usp=sharing

On April 8, we will join forces with Keep Austin Beautiful for the citywide "Clean Sweep" and pick up all of the litter in the creek near our school.

We will borrow materials such as litter grabbers from Keep Austin Beautiful then gather volunteers to pick up all of the litter in the creek and the creek bed near our school. We will also partner with Austin Parks Foundation to get the word out to potential volunteers in the neighborhood.

I will reach out to the local animal shelter and organize a visit and tour to learn more about their mission as a nonprofit and about adoption centers in general and how to support them.

Myself and other Global Glimpse participants accepted into the program will ask for the volunteering support of Zumba teachers who will run the classes, will advertise through online invitations, posters, and flyers, and also bake healthy snacks to sell as part of a bake sale at the event. To attend there will also be an entrance fee. All donations/money collected will be put to support other students in being able to travel internationally and have a valuable experience.

I will reach out to a local adoption center, Adopt-A-Dog, and organize an hour long presentation on animal discrimination as part of Diversity Awareness Week, a week celebrating and empowering young people to realize the power in unity and inclusiveness amongst people in a variety of areas. This presentation will present background on animal discrimination for certain dog breeds, be interactive for students to gain a better understanding of this issue by asking questions, and leave students enlightened and questioning their previous ingrained views on certain animals.

We will organize and hold an hour long event beginning with a sharing of our stories and personal experiences/struggles as young women leaders with a formal presentation. Then we will have an panel discussion which leads to the opening up for questions from the audience. The goal of this speaking event is to bring recognition to young women leaders who do not receive as much credit for their work as men and hopefully inspire others to pursue what they enjoy and perform meaningful work.

We will welcome the pubic to come in, see what we do and meet the animals. We hope to gain new members, donations to help support the animals under our care and hopefully bring awareness to people about horse slaughter and how they can help Stop the Shipping of Horses to Slaughter in the USA.

My Roots & Shoots Club will hold a school-wide event inviting students and staff to come bake the treats for the shelter animals together after school while also raising awareness for the easy and fun ways to support animals in finding their forever homes in adoption centers.

Indialantic STEM classes could use the shade house to observe plant growth, etc., while learning more about our local ecosystem. I feel it is important for younger students to understand more about the problems that face the Indian River Lagoon, and to also feel like they can make a difference. This project would engage your students, and afford them the opportunity to interact with high school-aged volunteers that are eager to be positive role-models.
