Congratulations, Gemini Elementary 5th Grade Class

There was a nice article in Tuesday's Florida Today about a 5th grade class at Gemini Elementary School in Melbourne Beach. According to the story, Lynne Gelinas' class has studied sea turtles all year and helped to protect these sea creatures by doing walks and creating "Save the Sea Turtle" posters that will be displayed in the windows of Melbourne Beach businesses. The students have also done a lot of beach cleanups.

The class presented Cindy Doloway from the Sea Turtle Preservation Society with a plaque and a poster. The plaque looks really neat - a metal sea turtle containing all of the things that are harmful to sea turtles. I'm checking to see if they sell the plaques.
