The Problem

The campaign for Cheviot Hills High School is School and Community Beautification. We have four Saturdays through out the year that we schedule our School Site Council meetings and the parents participate along with their children to clean the campus and replant/harvest our garden. We also plan field trips to the Getty Museum and Hyperian Treatment plant to teach students and families about recycling and caring for the planet.

Our Plan

I have students create Power Point presentations to share what they've learned. We also complete pre and post tests after the field trips so we can collect data which tells us what the students have learned and why. I would use the grant money to buy plants for the garden. Parents and students help us maintain our garden. We also harvest our produce and make salads to share during our meetings.
