Community Helpers

During the spring, which seems like a very long time ago now, the Literacy Club brainstormed on different ways

to improve their neighborhood.

Cleaning was one of the first ideas.

I went to the Majora Carter Group center in the Bronx (http://www.majoracartergroup.com/)  and purchased a few dog poop few signs. Perviously, I saw a few signs in the Hunts Point area of the Bronx and took the phone number  (718-874-4313) listed at the bottom of the sign to see if I could start the same thing in my neighborhood.

They were super eager to post signs throughout the neighborhood.

I personally think they liked the opportunity to tell their community what to do.

An entire week was dedicated to talking about Dog Poop in the neighborhood. We read  Dog books together as a class and even made up dog songs!

No more Dog Poop!

Chants

 

They are so adamant and ready to clean up the streets from dog poop they begin to chant “No more Dog Poop!”

They had just finished putting a dog poop sign by the garden.
