Earth Day Celebrations 2011
On April 21st the students celebrated Earth day by participating in several activities.
All of the grade 1-8 classes took turns helping to clean the school grounds, Willowfield Gardens Park, and a section of the hydro right of way. The students did a great job of collecting the trash and making sure that all the paper and plastic products were placed in our recycling. Our school also reduced our energy consumption by turning off lights and electronics in the afternoon.
In addition to this many of the classes did their own eco challenges.
- Rm.6 & 8 learned about proper recycling at school
- Rm. 7 & 9 learned about recycling and created environmental posters
- Rm. 21& 24 read The Giving Tree and learned about the importance of giving back to our environment.
- Rm. 26 started a home energy conservation challenge
- Rm. 27 made environmental posters
Thank you to all the students and staff for supporting and celebrating Earth Day!
