Earth Week was focused on making students aware of environmental concerns and take action to help create a cleaner environment to play and work in.

Students helped pick up litter around the school, attended different events during school time to explore green practices and participated in ways to help reduce, re-use and recycle.  We also had guest musician perform some environmental songs for the staff, students and parents during a school-wide assembly.
