Diversity Wildcats, a club for 4th-6th graders at Newport Intermediate School, is partnering with Northern Kentucky’s Sanitation District 1 (http://www.sd1.org/) to mark storm drains around the school’s neighborhood to celebrate World Water Day. The city of Newport struggles to keep its storm drains free from litter, debris, and chemical pollutants, all of which run off into the natural waterways after it rains. Located right at the confluence between the Licking River and the Ohio River (one of the major rivers in the United States), it is all the more important for the people of Newport to contribute to keeping the storm drains clean. The Diversity Wildcats club will help their community with this effort by identifying and marking different storm drains with messages about keeping debris, trash and harmful pollutants out of the storm drains.
Following the theme, “Think Global, Act Local” The Diversity Wildcats Club exposes youth to local and global issues while encouraging diversity and empowering students to make positive contributions to their community through project-based learning. This year, the club’s focus is on Water Conservation and Biodiversity.
Specials thanks to our club’s students: Abbigail, Aliyanna, Brendan, Bri, Corey, Gabe, Mia,and Trenton.
