On Monday, May 2, the grade 8 students gave a presentation to the Middle School on the problems of plastic pollution, communicating some of the concepts they learned in their Individuals and Societies class.  Related to the global context of globalization and sustainability, students shared their discoveries that plastic waste is a global problem affecting the future of the planet. They attempted to "inform and persuade" their fellow students to make some simple changes to be a part of the solution rather than a part of the problem.
