Name of the rain barrel: Protecting the Past, Present and Future. Theme as written by Mr. Kisiel's 5th Grade Class:
"Our rain barrel reflects the responsibility of our school community in protecting the unique ecosystem here in Rehoboth Beach. The WWII towers on the beach represent our past. The protected sand dunes represent our present. Our school starfish logo represents our students, who are our future environmental leaders. Our rain barrel will be located on school property, continuing to educate our future students about rainwater runoff while supplying much needed water for our school garden."
