Earth Day is April 22nd, how will you celebrate this year?
I haven't fully decided yet, but we have a busy week at school!
Tuesday is report card day in our board, as it marks the end of our third quarter. Our kiddos will be released at noon for the day so their families can make a trek in to pick up their reports and chat with us about their progress and how together we can help the kids succeed.
In the morning from 10-12 we'll be having our annual community clean up. Last year my kiddos filled SOOO many bags with junk from the school yard, and we finished it off with a free lunch at the high school. This year the free lunch will be at the community hall, so most of our cleaning I guess will be on our way there.
Last year we MIGHT have found a few bike pieces.......
So, that only leaves me from 9-10 to do anything FOR Earth day, ON Earth day, and 9-9:45 is guided reading sooo....
Yup, I have some deciding to do!
I'll probably choose one of these awesome ideas from Educents to use as my Bell work that morning. Check them out!
