Welcome Klem Road South Elementary School's Pond Partners Project.

Thanks to a generous grant from HP, students from various grade levels will be working as environmental scientists and stewards of our fresh water as they visit ponds and streams in Webster throughout the school year. Making observations, collecting data, developing inquiry investigations and reporting findings are just a few of the activities planned for the year. Concepts of change, interdependence, and cycles will be developed through the many hands-on experiences at the pond and back in the classrooms.

Why do we have parks? George Catlin was an artist, in 1832, who thought that people should not build too many buildings everywhere in the United States. In the late 1800's Congress began to create national parks which saved the wilderness from being destroyed. On August 25, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson and Congress developed the national park service. People use parks by taking walks and getting energy, also by walking our pets to be healthy. So, is the water in our parks "healthy" or not. We decided to investigate.
