Middle Schoolers take Environmental Action

by Kathryn Jeakle, Eighth Grade Marine Science Teacher
Last weekend, Natalia G '26 and Leila H '26 spent time together cleaning up the local environment. They were able to collect a total of 7.63 pounds of trash and even found a wooden footrest from someone's beach chair stuck in the mangroves.  

"We also saw trash stuck in between the seawall and mangroves. We saw plastic bottles, bags, and fast food cups the most," Natalia described.

Chargers are striving to cultivate Shorecrest's goal of being an Ocean Guardian School by cleaning up our watershed as well as minimizing our single-use plastic usage while on campus. This year, seventh and eighth graders are steering the school on improving the paper-only recycling program, learning about how we negatively impact the environment, and taking actions to keep the local environment clean.
