DARIEN – On Feb. 21, the Cass Junior High School sixth graders participated in an interactive, hands-on presentation that taught the importance of energy conservation.

The program, sponsored by NICOR and ComEd, also gave each participating student’s family an energy saving kit to install at home, according to a news release from Cass School District 63.

Some of the items included in the kit were: three CFL light bulbs, three sink aerators, a five-minutes shower timer and a low flow shower head.

Teachers also have the opportunity to earn grant money based on the return of the family survey that came with the energy saving kit.
