There was a letter to the editor in this week’s Morrison County Record from the second graders at Dr. S. G. Knight Elementary School in Randall, Minnesota.  The kids are asking for help in saving the planet.  They suggest ways to cut down on the consumption of electricity, especially during the upcoming Christmas season.

The thing you have to know about Dr. S. G. Knight Elementary is that it has a school-wide attitude of feistiness.  The teachers are creative and find inexpensive and innovative ways to educate the students.  The school feels like a cohesive community, a big family where everyone knows everyone else and they all look out for each other.  It’s a great place to have your kids educated.

If the Dr. Knight second graders have decided to lick global warming and pollution, I have no doubt that they’ll make some serious headway on the issue.
