April 22, 2017 is Earth Day. The theme for Earth Day 2017 is Environmental and Climate Literacy. To commemorate this event our teachers and children will be having an in depth discussion on this theme and their role in helping to preserve our environment on Monday, April 24, 2017. Our mission is to encourage the children to appreciate Mother Nature and therefore we will have a “Help Preserve Our School Community Program” on Monday, April 24, 2017.
The children will be helping to pick up litter and dried leaves and others around our school. Please provide a home shirt/blouse and a pair of gloves for this event. Thank you for your support. Parents are encouraged to join in this program. Please check with the individual classroom on their outdoor schedule if you are participating.
