Have you heard our Green Team on WTSA or perhaps read about them in The Reformer? Students at Oak Grove are doing a tremendous job educating the adults and one another about ways to help us create a greener Earth. Last week they presented information to our School Board, showing them ways that we can reduce rubbish and increase recycling and composting efforts in our town. These students are role models in our school community and will certainly be our leaders of tomorrow!

ZOLA WINS BEST ILLUSTRATOR AWARD
Zola Von Krusenstiern is a winner! Students from all three Brattleboro Town elementary schools subjected themselves to a voluntary and extremely rigorous program of learning how to write, illustrate and publish a book in a program run by Dianne Clouet, BEEP coordinator. There were guidelines and deadlines. Students tried and dropped out of the program because the demands were fierce. But 20 students from all three schools stuck with it and were rewarded by a beautiful finished product that they created themselves.
These 20 books were then judged two times. The first round culled the entries down to 10 finalists, and the second round decided the top three books and the best illustrator award. Zola, whose book was also in the top ten, was voted this year's best illustrator!
Zola's book, FINDING HOPE, as well as the winning title written by a Green Street student, will be available in the school library soon.
