Mrs. Devlin, an expert on storm drains, taught 4th graders how to save water and stop our water from being polluted. Our water gets polluted from things like soap, animal waste, grass, and all sorts of things that can pollute water. She called those things "villians." Thanks, Mrs. Devlin, for teaching us so much! - Avi Sutcliffe, 4th grader
