Woods Mill Middle splashes into community service project
Students participate in Adopt-a-Stream Program
Brian Wiley with the Gainesville Public Utilities department teaches Woods Mill Middle School students about stream quality Friday at Ivey Terrace Park.
The students of the newly formed Wood’s Mill Middle School are already making quite the splash in the inaugural school year. Friday marked the first day in their participation in an Adopt-a-Stream Program, in which they will take responsibility for monitoring and reporting stream conditions to the Gainesville Public Utilities Department on a monthly basis. Wood’s Mill teacher Shari Frazier said they had brought the idea to the students at the beginning of the school year, and they were very receptive.
