We Care About Air!


Girl Scout Troop 40534 has recently completed the Cadette Breathe journey. While researching air quality issues, the girls realized people often times take air for granted. And they decided to focus their Breathe journey Alert at Orange Avenue School, since they spend so much time at school. Please visit their website at and ways to improve air quality indoors. And if you are a member of the OAS family (i.e., staff or student at OAS), please take their short survey - they want your opinion on air quality inside OAS. Troop 40534’s goal is to make their fellow students and the teachers and staff at OAS more “air aware” and to care about air as much as they do!
