Lessons in Beauty and Joy

Lessons in Beauty and Joy

The entire third-grade class at Silver Creek Elementary School took part in a field trip (Friday, June 1, 2018) focusing on giving back to the community. Armed with garbage bags and gloves more than 60 students arrived at Hanover Beach to eagerly search through the sand and quickly fill their bags with trash. 

Once they were sure the beach was free from garbage, they started on a second task to bring joy to their community by hiding painted rocks around the beach. The rocks featured creative images and inspiring messages, which the students spent time preparing in the weeks before the trip.  After their hard work, the students celebrated at Sunset Grill, where they enjoyed a delicious lunch followed by ice cream.  The students had a wonderful day giving back to their community and hope their work will help bring happiness to others in the community as they visit the beach this summer.
