Local Scientist Speaks to Lower School Hornets

Our first through fourth graders enjoyed hearing from local scientist Cathy Sakas, Education Coordinator of NOAA Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary, about Gray’s Reef and the wildlife populations that live there. As part of her presentation, she challenged some of our STRONG students to break different types of plastic that are often found in our oceans — their difficulty to do so demonstrated the dangers plastic pollution poses to our marine wildlife. Ms. Sakas suggested some easy ways our students can be part of the solution, including eliminating plastic straw use and cutting plastic soda rings before disposing of them. A huge thank you to Ms. Sakas for stopping by and presenting to our Lower School Hornets!
