Lots of fun events on or around Earth Day April 23rd, 2016:

    •  Vegetable and Herb Garden for the NC community
    • Start of compost pile
    • Recycling throughout school
    • Rain barrel to conserve water for our garden
    • Starting energy team
  • St. Aloysius Regional School - collects the plastic water bottles from lunches, bingo and other events and recycles them at our local recycling center. We also collect our recyclable materials for our paper retriever box.  Toner and printer cartridges are also recycled.
  • St. Gregory the Great School - is taking paper bags from Top's Market, coloring an Earth Day message on the bag and returning them to Tops to distribute at their store.  We are also doing a school wide Earth Day Poster Contest.

  • St. Mary's School Swormville -
    • Earth Day Nature Walk - Students will explore the outdoors, writing down what they see on an ABC chart (trying to find at least one thing for each letter). They will then take the words they wrote and make them into a shape poem: the shape being something found in nature.

  • St. Peter School - Our Grade One class  is anxiously awaiting the response to a grant to which we applied in celebration of Earth Day. Mrs. Carly Lauzonis and Mrs. Anna Moran, with the assistance of our Science mentor, Mrs. Vivian Pokrzyk a grant to plant and harvest a garden on our school property. Students will be involved in all components of the process, from selecting seeds, to composting, to harvesting healthy foods for their summer camp snacks.
  • St. Stephen School - We are erecting an 18X36 green house as well as class gardens.
  • Nardin Academy - Montessori School - Every year, around Earth Day, I make recycled paper with the children. Each child gets to make and take home their own piece of paper made from scratch.
