Albion Elementary students celebrate Earth Day with community cleanup

Albion Elementary students rolled up their sleeves and got to work on Earth Day to do their part in creating a cleaner, greener environment.

Armed with garbage bags and pickers, Jennifer Holman’s Grade 4/5 and Cheryl Denton’s Grade 3/4 classes made their way through the neighbourhood, cleaning the community one piece of litter at a time.

Holman said the students loved going out and making a difference.

“The students were competing with one another in who could collect the most and they were truly surprised by some of the odd items that were found,” said Holman, adding they loved being able to go out and make a difference.

They found all sorts of items, from discarded wrappers and pop cans to a hanging flower pot and metal box.

Albion Elementary has been part of the Maple Ridge Adopt-a-Block program for several years and the Earth Day cleanup was one more way for students and staff to give back to the community.
