Pictures from 1998

Kruse Cares!
In partnership with our local Jewel/Osco Store, students received paper grocery bags to distribute in classrooms to decorate for Earth Day 1998. Kruse Education Center is part of Community Consolidated School District 146 incorporating sections of Orland Park and Tinley Park, Illinois. Our student population is 452.
Our students decorated a total of 437 grocery bags for Earth Day 1998! 21 classrooms participated in the event, including students from Kindergarten through 6th grade. Students included individual messages on the bags that showed that Kruse students really care about our earth. They learned that part of being earth conscious is to share their message with the community. Students were very proud of their work. Student Council officers delivered the brightly decorated bags to the grocery store in time for Earth Day distribution.
This is the first year Kruse Education Center participated in this great project. Thanks for starting this great idea! We look forward to participating again next year.
