Final update on Westerly's rain barrel project

Did you hear? The Rain Barrel Run Off project that Mrs. Fisher’s class did was a huge success! All the rain barrels were sold and soon lots of houses will be conserving water and helping the environment. 

If you see one, please take a moment and think about all the hard work that was put into it. The rain barrels will help reduce storm water, pollution and all kinds of other things.

If you bought a rain barrel then you know how beautiful and bright they are and how they fit nicely in your garden. The rain barrel water can be used for things such as washing cars or watering plants and flowers. Thank you for supporting our project and we hope you enjoy them.

To celebrate the end of our rain barrel project and the end of the school year, our class had a restaurant called the H2O Café. Parents and friends in the community came to eat and see the rain barrels at the restaurant in our Westerly cafeteria. We invited the president of the Bay Education Foundation, Mr. Scott Best, to eat at the H2O Café because we had a giant check to give him from the profits we made selling the rain barrels. The total was $778.10 and Mr. Best was impressed! 

Thank you again, Bay Village. We couldn’t have done it without the support of the businesses and the rain barrel buyers.  This is a project that my classmates and I will always remember.
