On Monday, Jamestown Middle School students will spray paint “Keep it Clean – Drains to River” messages on storm drains in Jamestown, according to Jim Collins Jr., environmental scientist with the North Dakota Department of Health. The goal of the stenciling project is to remind residents of the importance of protecting water quality.
All seven Jamestown Public Schools met Adequate Yearly Progress goals according to preliminary results, said Dave Saxberg, Washington Elementary School principal.
The results are “incredible,” said Bob Toso, JPS superintendent, at the regular meeting of the Jamestown Public School Board Monday.
