“I’m hoping to make a difference not only by reducing my own footprint, but by multiplying the beneficial actions. I am hoping to do this through CAP Club and I aim to initiate a system that really encourages people to participate. I love to learn, especially about things that are my generation’s challenge to solve.”
~Zander Deetz (11th grader).
“The amount of work that was put into this project was amazing. The video that we made will be a huge success for everyone in the CAP class. I am very glad that this project went well and no one had a sour attitude towards it. Because of this we were able to make something so great. I thank everyone in my class. It was so nice to do something for the environment. I learned many things in this class that I would not learn in any other class including group skills and problem solving skills.”
~Levi McIntire (9th grade).
“Once the class had all the plans in place we worked very well and efficiently. With all this hard work we accomplished everything I expected to get done. I am pleased with the result of our educational video. We did a very good job with the project. As a citizen of Boulder County I feel like I have always known a good amount about important environmental issues. Now that I have taken this CAP class I feel like almost an expert on a few specific issues. Having done this research I feel much more obligated to continue helping out to solve water problems.”
~Alex Stern (12th grade).
“Another important part of this class is the action project, we chose water issues. We decided to make a motion picture to educate the public about the impact of bottled water on the environment, and how to conserve water in our arid climate. At first, I felt like there was not much we could do, but as time went on I realized that we could do a lot, and just because we are high school students doesn’t limit the amount of influence we have on other people. I feel it is our role to take more action in the community.”
~Scott Collins (10th grade).
Thanks for a great quarter and I look forward to seeing you around school!
