After adopting Albina, the third graders of Lake Canyon Elementary in California were inspired to study sea turtles. In doing so, they created a “Readers Theatre” for their school, where they shared their knowledge of sea turtles and provided tips on ways to help conservation efforts. Their classroom became known as the “Sea Turtle Room.” During open house, many students not in the class brought in their parents to teach them about sea turtles. The school then put on a fundraiser called the “Color Me Run.” Classes choose a charity to run for, collected pledges and ran while getting sprayed with colored paint. The event was even covered in the local news! The third grade class raised an amazing $226 for STC. Excellent work Lake Canyon Elementary!!! Thank you for your support in helping sea turtles!
After researching the French islands, Central Middle School in Maryland discovered the eminent threats to sea turtles which nest on these islands. Their focus was to promote responsible tourism on the French islands where sea turtles were found. To raise awareness and money, the school held a turtle art competition. After only one week, they collected $1,005 to support STC! Way to go Central Middle School!!! Thank you for your support!
