Green Delivery

Students at Dana Gray Elementary School in Fort Bragg, California aren't so sure about snail mailing their poems to the president. The students think that to save paper & trees:

  • poems should be spoken aloud to the president instead of mailed
  • poems should be delivered by bicycle (by limo, by solar-powered bus, by biodiesel RV, by walking, by motorcycle)
  • poems should be delivered to the president by students performing on TV
  • poems could be printed on recycled paper, and rolled into recycled bottles, and delivered as messages in a bottle
  • poems could be delivered by carrier pigeon
  • poems could be delivered WITH art/ pictures, drawings
  • students could phone in and speak their poems

Thank you to California Poets in the Schools poet-teacher Karen Lewis for sharing these wonderful ideas!
