McDougle Elementary School bonded together to participate in a schoolwide activity to raise awareness about water conservation. Today 6th graders walked across the street to Anderson Park and each student collected a jug of water to carry back to school. The total amount of water collected represents the amount of water that one American family uses in a day. Then they filtered some of the water and poured the rest into a "water garden". The school is also raising money for clean water in Sudan. Nautia Rone, 11, balances a water jug on her head to imagine how the women in Sudan transport water.
