A Visit from our City Councilmember
City Councilmember Ben Kallos visited Gillen Brewer to discuss with students their unit on electricity. He visited the Battleships, Otters, and Clouds classes. In each classroom, students read their letters wherein they shared concerns and offered suggestions for saving the planet by using solar energy. Councilmember Kallos then shared with students some of the city’s renewable energy initiatives, including 15 wind turbines that will soon power 50,000 homes on Long Island. He also encouraged our students to keep speaking out, coming up with ideas, and stressed the importance of asking your elected officials to do things to save the planet.
