NORWICH – The 4th grade students in Kristen Behuniak’s class at Holy Family have been busy over the past months. After watching Al Gore’s Oscar-winning documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” the students are trying to spread the word about global warming and environmental responsibility.
At Tuesday night’s meeting of the Common Council, seven of the 4th graders in the class stood before the council and explained what they had been working on and how they were trying to get the message out.
“Tell a friend the good news that we have a chance to make the world a better place,” the students wrote on one of the posters they brought with them.
“I hope everyone is more aware because of our children, here,” said Mayor Joseph Maiurano. Children in the class are Corrine Shea, Anastasia Tenney, Mpoki Mwalupindi, Nicole Ann Mealey, Marybeth Ward, Cassandra Corey, Taylor Stroh, Shane Reynolds and Alec Weaver. The council thanked the children for attending, before the meeting turned to other topics.
