As a follow up to Earth Day, Kathy Veperts’ Grade 2 class at Hawthorne Elementary sent letters to Delta South MLA Ian Paton expressing concern about the use of plastics and styrofoam in Delta. (This was before the federal announcement.) Students wrote heartfelt letters regarding their concerns about the impacts of plastics and our local carbon footprint. Paton and Delta Coun. Dylan Kruger came to the classroom on June 11 to discuss local issues and answer questions. Veperts says the kids were thrilled and felt empowered that day. She says they’re passionate and knowledgeable about environmental issues.
