Recently the North Dakota Department of Game and Fish provided students with the chance to design their own “Earth Day Patch 2022”. The students were provided with a template and instructions. They were limited to 4 colors, and it needed to represent North Dakota and Earth Day. This week Westhope 2nd grade students Zaven Efimenko and Braysen Grann were given a patch that was ultimately chosen but their artwork was considered. Soon (12 May) you will see the second grade and sixth-grade students from the elementary school out in our community as they work on the beautification of our community…aka trash pick-up day! Finally, our winter is winding down and the trash is exposed so be on the lookout as they pick it up, bag it, and get it out of the community. Always remember that every day is Earth Day!
