  Cove Creek Students Study Environmental Issues and Endangered Species  
   
Sixth grade students at Cove Creek celebrated Earth Day April 22nd by presenting projects about endangered species and environmental issues. “We asked students to prepare digital presentations that would identify the concern, give some background on the animal or issue that explains the challenge, and then propose solutions,” said Madison Hollar, sixth grade teacher at Cove Creek.  Hollar and colleague Cynthia Townsend praised the quality of the presentations, which their students shared with students in grades K-5 and school visitors in the school’s media center.  Hollar commented that “it’s been a great project where the students really have done all the work on their own…we gave them the guidelines and they took off with it.”

They have earned the success they enjoyed and we're very proud of their achievements."
