Check out how kindergarten teacher, Nancy Jois from Capri Elementary, used her teacher grant to fund her project, the Capri Rain Garden🌧
This project taught kindergarten classes about the water cycle, erosion and landscaping in our dry Southern California climate. With this grant, the students created models of individual water cycles, used their models to demonstrate the concept of erosion, and added plants to the school campus rain garden to help prevent erosion/ water runoff into a storm drain.
Great work to Nancy & her kindergarten students!

Let FOG cool, pour them in a can, and seal the can with a lid. Pouring FOG down your drain can potentially cause a sewer backup in your home and may lead to a sewer spill.
