Poplar Bridge Raingarden

Poplar Bridge is partnering with Nine Mile Creek Watershed District in order to establish a rain garden as an outdoor learning space for our students. It will be working in collaboration with an already established courtyard that houses important learning tools such as a pond, rain barrel, and natural vegetation. These spaces will be used to make our curriculum both local and relevant and give direct opportunities for students to observe their natural surroundings. Students will be involved in the entire process of creating a raingarden. In our pre-determined space, students will be doing percolation tests to see how rapidly or slowly water will soak into the soil. With that information, they will determine the depth and size of the garden. We will be using, “The Blue Thumb Guide to Raingardens” to aid us in determining the type of plants and are currently considering a bird and butterfly garden to attract our winged friends. We also hope to plan the garden so a majority of blooming will take place while school is in session. These VAPUR water bottles are BPA-free, dishwasher safe, come in many different colors, can be rolled up to be stored in your pocket, schoolbag, or purse, and have a carabiner attached to them so you can clip them anywhere you’d like. There is a place on the back to write your name with a permanent marker, so they are easily identifiable as well. The bottles will be for sale at our Back to School Celebration and in the school store at Poplar Bridge Elementary for $10.00. If you already have a reusable water bottle but would like to help our cause, there is a place on our website where you can donate money instead. Thanks for your support!

Potters for Peace

The students in Miss. Carr's third-grade class at Montlieu Elementary have been learning about their environment and the important role water plays in our communities. On April 27th the elementary students will be joined by Welborn Middle and Andrews High on their local greenway as part of a community event. Greenway Day features a variety of scientific activities hosted by UNC-Greensboro's GK-12 program, funded by the National Science Foundation. During the day the class will offer the bottles as both a sustainable alternative to disposable containers and as a fundraising method for Potters for Peace. Potters for Peace is a US-based non-profit that works in two clay-related fields: working with subsistence potters in Central America and working throughout the world to assist with the establishment of factories that produce ceramic water filters. more

In James 1:27, we are called to "look after orphans and widows in their distress". This project is doing exactly that. We feel we are compelled to leave a legacy in a world that seems to only care about oneself . We emphasis that in 20 years, no one will remember the shirt you wore, or that pimple you had right smack-down in the center of your nose. What they will remember however, is the words that you said, and the way that you loved others. Project:127 is challenging you to be apart of something bigger then yourself. We ask you join hands with us as we save lives by providing education for those less-fortunate. more
