Difference Makers Series

Last year’s Early Kindergarten students learned that balloons are one of the top 3 polluters of our oceans. In an effort to save our oceans, they each signed a pledge with their parents to use “Bubbles NOT balloons!” Their activism caused BHS events (like Graduation and Spring Fling) to use bubbles instead of balloons. The EK students told us their story at a Difference Makers assembly where we were so pleased to highlight our very own, very young Difference Makers.
Our second Difference Maker presenter was special guest, 17-year-old Wyatt Workman. When Workman was 8 years old, he heard of the astonishing pollution levels in our oceans and decided to make a change through art. By creating and selling clay sculptures, Workman was able to donate money to the nonprofit ocean conservation organization, Oceana. He also made a claymation movie and then a book called Save the Sea from the Trash Monster! which he read to our ECD students after the assembly. Thank you, Wyatt, for being a Difference Maker and for inspiring our students to do the same!
