Earth Day Highlights and Pictures!
Happy Earth Day to everyone! I hope you were able to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather, and I hope you were able to give back even just a little something to the earth too. I’m delighted to report that there is a lot going on at Penn Charter this week to celebrate Earth Day/Week! Here are some highlights and pictures from today...
The US Green Club hosted a screening of No Impact Man, a poignant, funny, and thought-provoking documentary about a family trying to go zero-impact for a year...in Manhattan. Students and faculty alike agreed it was an excellent movie in general, not just for a Green Club. Put it on your Netflix queue (and there’s a “clean language” version as well)!
The LS classes are going on hikes in the Wissahickon this week.
The 1st grade is collecting an assortment of materials to “upcycle” through their TerraCycle campaigns. (a future blog posting will be devoted to this awesome project).
- The Green Club practiced setting up tents to prepare for our camping trip in May.
The pre-K looked for signs of spring in Chigwell today (very, very cute!).
The US Green Club is leading a hike through the Wissahickon for all interested students, faculty, and families on Friday. Meet in the front loop at 2:40.
- The US Green Club is hosting it’s annual E-Waste Drive on Sunday. From 10:00am - 2:00pm, bring your e-waste to the MS lot and rest assured that your electronics will be recycled/disposed of responsibly.
Hope you all have a terrific week!
