This is our first year participating in the project. Briggs School students in the following teachers' classrooms decorated grocery bags for Earth Day 1998: Ms. Boen, Mrs. Bynum, Mrs. Doss, Mrs. Guthrie, Mrs. Hamby, Mrs. Maker, Mr. Richardson, Mrs. Ritzhaupt, Mr. Ritzhaupt, Mrs. Ross, Mrs. Ryals, Mrs. Sampson, Mrs. Seagle, Mrs. Sellers, Mrs. Spencer, Mrs. Stepp, and Mrs. Whitney. The fifth grade students in Mrs. Doss' class gave a brief history of Earth Day and demonstrated designs to each of the other classrooms. The students decorated 390 bags with educational slogans. The grocery bags were distributed to the public at Reasor's Grocery Store in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, on Earth Day. Look for our photos on this website.
