Green Week and Earth Day

During Green Week, the school community will focus on ecology and the environment. We ask families to be especially aware this week of how much trash is reduced by using reusable containers and buying in bulk instead of purchasing individually packaged portions of lunch foods.

Screen-Free Week

The school participates in Screen-Free Week as a way of bringing awareness to the excessive amount of time many children spend watching screens instead of being active and creative. Media also has a way of barraging us with commercial messages and different sets of values that we may not welcome. Use this week of screen-free time to have some fun together with your children playing active games, dancing, playing music, making art, doing service projects...what else can you think of?
