Third grade students from Granby Elementary School in Mrs. Murdoch’s class and their kindergarten buddies in Mrs. Van Buren’s classroom joined forces with Kelly Weaver, Friends of Fulton City Parks, to spruce up Recreation Park as part of a project based learning initiative called “taking pride in your community.”

Students and parent volunteers from Granby Elementary School pause for a photo after working to clean up Recreation Park recently.

The students along with parent volunteers took to work picking up trash, branches and bags and bags of leaves from the local park.

“We are being green!” was the sentiment as the students worked furiously to get the job done.

The students’ task is two-fold with another project coming up to bring a free lending library to the west side of the city that will be housed at the recreation park location.

Not every moment was spent working, these two students, Xavier Holcomb and Sydney Osbner, took a break to jump into the pile of leaves they had raked up during the park cleanup.
