On a early morning last week, a class of fourth-graders from Dundalk Elementary School followed their teacher Kelly Conlon like a gaggle of geese, down the sidewalk outside the school. The children wore special T-shirts from Living Classrooms to commemorate their task for the day.
They were on a mission to improve the neighborhood, transforming an ordinary storm drain into an environmental message for all to see.
Behind the children and their teacher walked a group from the Living Classrooms Foundation, which assists neighborhood schools, integrating education with projects to benefit the neighborhood. Also in line were representatives from the Honeywell Corporation, which funds Living Classroom’s efforts locally.
