"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." - Dr. Suess
To help foster an attitude to care a whole awful lot about our planet, PCS students and staff took a field trip to Iron Pier Beach in Jamesport and participated in a beach cleanup with the help of The Group for the East End. Children have a innate sense of wonder and respect for nature. It's beauty, simplicity, and complexity captivate students of all ages. There is an instinct to protect the world around us and take care of our planet. It is an instinct that is all too often outgrown as other things in life override the inclination to conserve and value our earth. Solidifying a reverence for the environment at a young age raises the likelihood of youth blossoming into citizens who are mindful, compassionate and respectful of where we live. It ensures that this generation of children will continue to care a whole awful lot. And our planet is going to get better. It is.
