St. David School Celebrates Earth Day!

Grade 1 St. David students, Alex Down-Rhodenizer, Hayley Southwind, and Zach Munoz show off their Earth Day necklaces.

April 24, 2013 - On April 22, 2013 the students in Mrs. Cimino's grade 1 class participated in hands on educational Earth Day activities. During the activity centres, the students made Earth Day necklaces as a reminder to keep our earth clean and healthy. They read the book "The Lorax" and discussed what can happen if we do not take responsibility for the care of our planet.

St. David Catholic Elementary School students participate in a school wide recycling program, composting program and vermi composting program.

Next Friday, the grade one students and their fellow St. David classmates will be participating in the community clean up along Jean Street, Frood Road and Dupont Street. "The students had a wonderful day learning about the importance of maintaining a healthy environment while having fun and participating in activities that engaged their minds and kept them physically active. As a class, we have really focused on healthy living and environmentally friendly actions. The students continue to be committed to caring for their environment and making choices that improve and support the positive development of their community", states Maria Cimino, grade 1 teacher at St. David School.
