Manara Academy students join in efforts to clean local river
This year, Manara Academy students embarked on a hands-on learning expedition and joined Ten on Tuesday, a regional effort to pick up ten pieces of trash each Tuesday. Several hundred of Irving, Texas' Manara students joined the nearly 21,000 North Texans who have already taken the Ten on Tuesday pledge by collecting ten pieces of trash around the Trinity River.
"We hope that we can make a difference as fifth graders and influence others to pick up trash and not pollute our earth," says one Manara Academy fifth grader.
