Maine-Endwell students of all ages celebrated Earth Day with a full week of activities designed to make their school and community a better, greener place to be.
During Morning Program, Homer Brink students were visited by Mother Earth who spoke to them about ways to care for the Earth. Students received seed packets and listened to Dr. Seuss’s "The Lorax." Visitor’s to the school’s library learned that even a good book can be recycled and read over and over again. The students receive bookmarks reminding them of the school’s book recycling event, "Going Green with Books."
Kindergarten students spruced up their school by collecting trash. Armed with rubber gloves the students filled four garbage bags! "They had a great time while making our Earth a better place to live," said teacher Penny Scott.
Students at Maine Memorial also read "The Lorax." Afterward they wore mustaches and wrote about ways they could help the Earth. One student wrote, "I would help the Earth by planting more trees. There would be more oxygen and birds could make a nest. I would pick up trash so we will have a cleaner environment. It will help animals not get sick."
At the Middle School, members of the SADD Club picked up trash around their school as part of National Youth Service Day.
Action Ecology club members at the High School, along with help from the school’s Art Club, invited students to be the "Seeds of Change" at their school. Students could paint a clay pot and plant vegetable seeds during their lunch period. They could also enter into a raffle for some easy to grow potted greens. Thanks to Action Ecology every staff member in the building received a a packet of seeds to plant at home.
