Project draws students to school - on Saturday

November 12, 2007

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - On Nov. 3, a group of T.A. Lowery Elementary School students spent their Saturday helping to build a nature trail.

The students are part of K-Kids, a student-led community service club for elementary-age students that teaches the value of helping others through participation in community service projects and club activities. The organization is sponsored nationally by Kiwanis International.

The nature trail is in a wooded area on school property. The students spread grit along the trail to provide access to all students. The trail will be an educational tool as signage, benches and other resources are added.

The school's parent-teacher organization acquired a Lowe's Toolbox for Education grant for the trail, and the West Virginia Kiwanis Foundation contributed as well. Aggregate Industries is providing the grit at no charge.
