PTO Earth Day Challenge

The PTO, under the direction of Mrs. Hemenway, is organizing the Earth Day Challenge.  The program will include asking students to participate in activities that include walking to school, recycling, reusing products, turning off faucet when brushing teeth, and picking up trash, helping in a garden, using reusable bags, or planting a tree among other attempts to honor mother earth. Find the right match you you! Each participating student will submit a postcard or letter stating how they have been earth friendly. Students can write in more than once if they have done multiple things. The 2 classrooms with the most participation will be rewarded with extra outdoor supplies.  Everyone that participates will get a small reward. It is an easy way to make us all more earth conscious and teach our children to respect the earth!
