Easter Monday – no school

Tuesday, April 22

HAPPY EARTH DAY!  We are all conscious of showing respect for and looking after our environment.  Just as we will do at school, please talk to your children about how we can do this on many levels – globally, nationally, provincially, community, school, class, and personally.

WE CAN EACH EASILY:   Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle.  Turn off electronics and lights when you are away from your workspace.  Eliminate the use of plastic bags.  Bring in and carry out when you go hiking, go for picnics, or make lunches for school.  Join with our buddy classes to “Pitch In” and clean up a part of our schoolyard.

This week we challenge all families to send lunches and snacks in re-usable containers and use no soft plastic bags including Ziplock bags.
