Thanks to valley students

Kudos to Professor Greenberg and the Wood River High School Environmental Club for their exhaustive efforts toward banning plastic bags in our community. The students in this club spent many hours attending Hailey City Council meetings, drafting legislation, getting signatures on a petition to bring this piece of legislation to the voters, campaigning, creating informative advertising, researching the issues and financing the showing of "Bag It" to inform the community of the effects of plastic on our environment. This was a tremendous learning experience for these students in government, democracy in action and freedom of speech and expression.

As the parent of a student involved in this club, I hope the school board will recognize Greenberg and the Environmental Club during one of its monthly accolades for their efforts to clean and protect our earth and environment. Greenberg integrated intensive international baccalaureate rigor and project-based learning into a club setting. We are so fortunate to have such a dedicated teacher and club sponsor who teaches her students real-world experiences in a club at Wood River High School.
