Earth Day Celebration – April 22nd

This year we are celebrating Earth Day on Friday April 22nd. Here is the plan:

Costumes
:
Students  can dress up in green or blue colours or in any sort of environmental theme (e.g. animals, plants) on Earth Day.

School Yard Clean-up:
Classes will be encouraged to help clean up the school yard.

Mural:
During lunchtime recess we will provide chalk for students to draw an environmental related mural on the school walls outside.

Assembly/Parade, 1:00pm: 
We will be presenting the Earth Buddies Eco mascots, and also short videos made by students.  After this all students will sing the Earth Day song.  We will immediately have our parade where we will head to Howard Park, then south down Roncesvalles and then back to school.

 

EARTH BUDDIES INTRODUCES ECO MASCOTS!

These mascots were developed by the 2014-15 Earth Buddies and will become a permanent part of our school culture, celebrating and encouraging eco-friendly activities such as Fresh-Fruit-Fridays, Bike-to-School-Week, litter-less lunches, recycling etc.

First introduced at the November 2015 Character Assembly, look for these characters throughout the year around the school and at events.
