As part of a weeklong study on Dr. Seuss, Mrs. Pollard’s second grade class at Ackerman Elementary School decided togive back to the environment.

Ms. Emily Windham, the student intern from Mississippi State, taught students about ways to help better the environment by reducing, reusing, and recycling. At the end of the week, on March 6, a guest speaker came to talk to students about different ways to take care of the Earth. As a way to give back to the Earth and to their school, the students planted daffodils, hyacinths, and yellow-bells around the second grade building.
