We are pleased to say that today four classes have gotten the golden ball! Mrs. Dawson's and Mme Tardiff's grade 6 class was one of the classes to get the golden ball. Also, the kindergarten classes won the ball too! But, best of all... Mrs. Maw's class, won the golden ball! She is the head of the environmental club!
For the first time in a while, Chapel Hill classes got four golden balls in one day! Our students did very well today! This week we had a yard clean up for Earth week and we an Earth Hour and and I-Walk to school day. This year we have had 3 Earth hours and 2 I walk days to school.
We have a Walking Club too. We do this twice a month this year. We walk during lunch hour with our teachers and friends. We get to explore nature and sometimes we even get to visit our grandparents in our school neighbourhood.
Today we have made several compost liners for the school. Also we have helped younger students learn how to help the environment online. We gave the golden ball to one of our AWESOME classes.
This week is Earth Week...Instead of using your car this week to get to school, why don't you walk to school. If you walk to school you can help to reduce the amount of pollution in the air . Climate change is changes in our Environment from pollution of our air, lakes and oceans. Our wildlife is affected by human development. When humans build they use the wood from the forest which was once an animals habitat.
Trash...Let's Keep Our Earth Clean...We are asking you to think before you throw out your waste. Perhaps you can organize a community neighbourhood clean up. Or if you have some extra time, maybe you could go pick up some litter in our parks.
Students: After your snack, put your juice box in the recycling bin. Reuse containters for something else, turn off computers and lights when not using them. Walk to school once or twice a week and most importantly don't litter!
