On Saturday morning June 22nd, students in Jennifer Gottfried’s fourth-grade class at Iroquois Middle School (and their families) cleaned up garbage and debris at Durand Eastman Beach and Channel 8 did a story on it! “It isn’t just one person’s world. Other people live here, too. People don’t want to see a world full of trash,” student Greyson Gilbert said during the interview. The clean-up was an additional layer to their “Stand Up” class project. “I think it shows that they really know their voice can be heard and they can make change they want to see in the world,” Mrs. Gottfried said. “This has been their idea from the get-go.”
