Earth Week | April 19 -23
This year for Earth Week at The Prep we are working in collaboration with the school to host a couple of recycling-minded events. It is a great time to welcome spring, to celebrate the Earth and to teach our children how to care for it through small initiatives.
We are going to have an old battery drive asking the students to bring in any dead batteries around the house that will then be disposed of safely and properly. Please send your used batteries in a sealed ziplock bag to class with your child during that week.
As well, in support of the Children’s Book Bank, an organization that promotes the idea of re-use and recycling, we are having a small book drive. We ask that your child brings only one book that will be donated to the Book Bank. Due to weight limitations and access by volunteers we can only manage one book each this year. If you have more books to pass along we encourage you to take them down to the Book Bank on their collection days.
There will be a special assembly for the boys featuring an Earth Week related presentation. We will have packets of tomato seeds for each of the students to bring home to plant, as well as a delicious nut-free Earth themed cookie decorating kit!
Thursday, April 22 is Earth Day and students are welcome to wear a green shirt to celebrate!
