Upstanding youngsters

The following is a selection of letters drafted by Elijah Smith Elementary School Grade 3 students attending Mrs. Klein’s class following a garbage cleanup on Falcon Drive.

To the city of Whitehorse:

Today I helped clean up our environment.

It was fun.

We got 29 bags of garbage. We picked it up on Falcon Drive.

There were 31 people! It made all of us feel proud.

When we first started, it looked like a dump. But now, it looks nice and neat!

I’m glad we helped our environment become a better place.

I hope nobody throws garbage there again.

Please try not to litter.

Sana

Today I helped pick up garbage on Falcon Drive. We had fun today.

I am proud that now I can see the ground. With the money our class is going to buy books and go on field trips.

We picked 29 bags.

If I had one wish I would wish that everyone would not litter, but if people keep on littering our earth will turn into a dump.

Robyn P.

Today I helped pick up garbage on Falcon Drive.

When we got there it was gross. When we were done it looked better and cleaner.

There was a lot of parents that helped us.

I hope people will not litter anymore.

I hope more people will clean up more.

It will help the world. Plants too.

It was lots of fun.

There were 29 bags.

We need to stop littering.

Ryan Hindson

Today, me and my class picked up 29 bags of garbage after I was so tired.

I almost fainted.

It took two hours to do it. We started at 9 a.m.

After we got, I wrote this letter and I hope people pick up the litter.

Ally

The garbage was disgusting.

We picked up 29 bags of garbage on Falcon Drive.

Now I hope people don’t litter.
