Severn School student to join Ontario environmental program


July 07, 1996|By Phyllis Lucas and Phyllis Flowers | Phyllis Lucas and Phyllis Flowers,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

SEVERN SCHOOL student Ebony Flowers will be traveling to Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario this month as part of an environmental studies program.

Ebony, 15, will work with scientists, taking soil samples, testing the water and analyzing the trees and animals during her 14-day stay.

The park, the largest in Ontario, is north of Toronto, near the Quebec border.

The trip is being funded by a grant to the Severn School from an alumnus. Teachers chose Ebony, a member of the Environment Club at the school.

Ebony selected the trip to Canada over two alternatives: studying the black sea turtles of Baja California and studying the sea turtles of the Virgin Islands.

When she returns, she will write a 10-page paper outlining the accomplishments of her environmental studies group.

The Brooklyn Park resident hopes to study marine biology in college.

Student parking permits

North County High School seniors will be issued parking permits next month.

The registration forms that were mailed home to students in the May/June newsletter must be completed, signed and returned to the office between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. the week of July 29. Forms also may be mailed in, but they must arrive by Aug. 2.

Students who work or have early-release schedules do not need to fill out applications if they turned in the forms they got at the end of the school year. They should report to the main office next month to pick up their permits.

All seniors driving to school on the first day must display their permits on their vehicles.

Juniors should bring completed applications to the main office during the first week of school (Aug. 26-30). Permits will be assigned for available parking spaces. No permits will be issued to freshmen or sophomores.

Wednesday festivities

"Wonderful Wednesdays" return to Brooklyn Heights United Methodist Church beginning this week.

Participants will "journey" to another part of the world, where they will learn something about that culture, sample international cuisine and send postcards to missionaries in that area. The first trip, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, will be to Asia.

The church is at 110 Townsend Ave. For more information, call 789-3688.
