April 22nd is Earth Day. I know what you’re thinking… ”why are we celebrating Earth Day, shouldn’t every day be Earth Day?” The short answer is “yes, yes it should, of course it should.” But then I also think every day should be Mother’s Day too, and well... you see where I’m going here. We all need days to reconnect, remember, and appreciate. So this year, the teachers decided to organize an Earth Week instead of just a day. They felt it would be more valuable to spread out the Earth loving energy over an entire week and it was great!
But before we detail the events of the week, a few bits of information about this interesting ‘Day’:
So what did our little school accomplish in their week of thinking, acting and celebrating the Earth?
Our kiddos were busy, and the teachers were inspired by their thoughtful words and meaningful actions. We should all feel proud of their efforts and perhaps you may even be inspired to do a little something this week, or month, or maybe even for the whole year that celebrates or helps our Earth.
