Wood County ESC (Northwest Region) – Advocacy Letter to Senator Portman

The Community Learning Center of Conneaut, based out of the Wood County ESC, wrote a letter to Senator Portman to advocate for protecting the rainforests, as part of their Service Learning Project.

Students were studying the rainforest while reading Afternoon on the Amazon, Magic Treehouse Book #6.  Students completed various projects, such as a mural, bark painting, and rainforest animal research and drawings.  During their studies, students learned how important the rainforest is to all life on earth.  One student suggested writing a letter to the Senator to suggest ways to help protect the rainforest.

 

Below is the letter students and staff wrote to Senator Portman:

Letter to Senator Portman

And the program received a response back from Senator Portman!

 

The program is very proud of their students for the way they think “big picture” and want to help protect something they have never even experienced.  After they received the letter, students were eager to find ways to help, which included hanging posters around their school encouraging staff and students to recycle paper and save the trees.
