Fifth Grade Presents to Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council

Today the fifth grade class presented to the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council. They asked the council to consider changing the current “recommendation” of a 50-yard boating distance from whales in the Monterey Bay to a 100-yard law. Students were well-spoken, educated and mature! Great job!
“The students’ presentation to members of the Council went really well,” commented fifth grade teacher and project co-leader Jessica Cambell.
