As you may already know we have new water fountains at F. E. Bellows school this year. There are two filtered stainless steel drinking fountains with a bottle filling station located on the 5th and 4th-grade floors.  These fountains help us save plastic water bottles and help us fill up our water bottles from home. You simply place your water bottle under the fountain and there is a sensor which senses the bottle and then the water is dispensed into your water bottle.     

On the top of each fountain, there is a screen that tracks how many plastic bottles we have saved by using the filling station.  On the 4th grade floor as of November 28, 2018, we have saved 3,052 bottles and on the 5th-grade floor, we’ve saved 2,734 bottles. Wow!!! We’ve been saving loads of plastic water bottles by using our own bottles. By saving all these plastic water bottles we are also preventing pollution and slowing down growing landfills. So we are making life easier, preventing pollution and saving plastic water bottles!

Another great pro is that the water is filtered which is better for our bodies.  It’s clear why Mr. Scarantino made the decision to get the water fountains installed.

I interviewed a fourth-grade student asking her how she felt about the new water fountains being installed.  Donna said, ”I really like the water fountains because they are less messy to fill your bottles and they look cooler.”

I am estimating about 190 kids a day come to the water fountain that’s a lot of kids each day!  I am curious to see if more water fountains like these will be installed in other schools in our district. I think that water fountains are very helpful for the environment and for us. It was a good decision to install the water fountains.
