Hi Students and Parents,
On Thursday, April 22, it will be Earth Day! What will you be doing to make the world a better place to live in? Will you spend the time outside enjoying nature's beauty or will you be picking up trash around your neighbourhood?
How can you help keep our planet beautiful or make a difference by not polluting? We can practice the 3R's - Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle!
Take a moment.... think about our world; its future. Think about playing a part in the Green Community initiative.
Earth Day 2010
The importance of Earth Day ties in with our social studies unit, Canada and World Connections. So, in honour of Earth Day, we will focus this week on - where does Canada rank in implementing environmental reform compared to other nations. We will look at how we, as a Canadian society, are making important changes to reduce air, water and land pollution. Then, we can consider some initiatives we can do in our class and in our school to reduce, reuse and recycle during this week and for the year.
