Glen View Elementary fifth-graders (left to right) Taylor Lamkin, Tianna Price, Jonathan Thompson and Kylar Hughes wash their hands at school. Local fifth-graders will have the opportunity during Water Fest to learn about water conservation, where water comes from, water rights and geological aspects related to water. The educational effort is a project of the Sparta Ground Water Commission.

Fifth-graders across the parish will take a day off from regular classes next week to learn a little more about the importance of water conservation.

All fifth-grade students in the Lincoln Parish School system will take a trip to Lincoln Parish Park on Oct. 14 or 15 to participate in the first year for an all-day learning experience called WaterFest.

The Sparta Groundwater Commission, the Department of Natural Resources, the City of Ruston and the Lincoln Parish Police Jury have all donated money to help fund the event.
