Do you think teachers rest over the summer? Think again! Most of us participate in workshops during the summer, like the one Mrs. Johnson (6th grade) and I attended this past week. The TAP-US (Think, Act, Protect the Upper Susquehanna) week long workshop was funded through the NOAA. We were trained in the conservation and preservation of local watersheds by testing stream water quality, collecting data in the field and of course, how to translate our new knowledge to the kids at school. We plan to educate Riverside kids about the local environment and support them in their actions to help conserve our wonderful natural resources. Go Green!
