Thank you so much for your generous donations to Rock Your Socks Day at Allen Park Schools! This celebration of World Down Syndrome Day has been so much fun! The students loved showing off their socks. It was so amazing to see the community come together to support and celebrate all “EXTRA” special kids. The district’s Cognitively Impaired programs greatly appreciate your support more than words could ever convey.

As a Wayne County Green School award recipient, Arno Elementary School is one of just 25 Schools eligible to participate in this year’s Adopt a Storm Drain contest!
The Alliance of Downriver Watersheds Schools for Clean Water Adopt a Storm Drain Contest is an easy online contest where you encourage parents, school staff, and community members to pledge to adopt a storm drain near their home. When they take the pledge they assign that pledge to your school.
The schools that get the most pledges will win cash prizes up to $1,500 for class materials and educational projects!
Here are the contest details:
The Alliance for Downriver Watersheds (ADW) is proud to announce the 2nd annual Schools for Clean Water Contest! As a current, or recent, Green School located in the Downriver area, your school is eligible to participate and win!
What is the Schools for Clean Water Contest?
The Schools for Clean Water Contest is a friendly competition to reduce pollution in our local waterways. Like last year, we will focus on keeping yard waste and litter out of storm drains.
How does it work?
Participating schools urge parents, alumni, and faculty to visit www.SchoolsForCleanWater.org between April 4th and April 22nd (Earth Day) to complete a simple online pledge to do their part. When they submit the pledge form, they assign that pledge to your school. At the end of the contest, we tally up the totals and the schools with the most pledges win cash prizes.
Who can pledge?
Anyone 18 and older can take the pledge including, but not limited to: parents, alumni, student’s family members, teachers, school support staff, friends, neighbors, etc…
What do schools win?
Eight schools will win a share of the $5,000 in prize money. The money can be used to pay for educational projects and classroom materials.
First Place – $1,500
Second Place – $1,250
Third Place – $1,000
Wild Card – 5 x $250 (all schools with 50 or more pledges, will be entered into a random drawing for the five wild card prizes)
In 2021, winners used the prize money to help fund programs like an outdoor classroom, a reading garden for special education students, school gardens, and other green initiatives.
