Crozet Elementary Fifth Graders Water Conservation PSA

Crozet Elementary Fifth Graders are making an IMPACT ! 

This spring the Crozet Elementary fifth graders are connecting with our community through service and our environment.  Their grade-wide IMPACT project (I’m Making a Planned Act of Compassion Today) was studying and protecting the creeks that feed into the Beaver Creek Reservoir.  They received a grant from the Roots and Shoots organization founded by Dr. Jane Goodall to fund our research and  solutions.

At the June 20, 2018 Crozet Community Advisory Committee (CCAC) meeting the primary agenda item was a presentation by the Rivanna Water & Sewer Authority (RWSA) on the Crozet Drinking Water Infrastructure Plan.  (Search #CCAC0618 on Twitter to follow the meeting highlights).   Allie Pesch, chair of the CCAC, graciously agreed,  at the last minute, to add the fifth graders’ presentation to the end of the meeting following the RWSA.   Several former fifth graders and their teachers came and stayed for the whole meeting to show the Public Service Announcement (PSA) they created.   To view the video, click on this link:


They spent this spring studying water issues and have created two other videos about what they learned.  You can view these on YouTube.


Very impressive work by these young people and a great deal of thanks and appreciate to their teachers, Betsy Agee, Gwedette Crummie,  Brandy Garbaccio, and Justin Stauffer who have made it possible.   The Crozet community is very lucky to have such dedicated and gifted teachers and smart, capable young people!
