This week is Earth Week and as the only Platinum certified Ontario EcoSchool in the WCDSB, we have some BIG things planned!
10:45 – Our Earth Week assembly will kick off the week! We will be celebrating our past successes and promoting new initiatives.
As well, our EcoTeam has partnered with our Social Action team to promote SUSTAINABILITY by running a Value Village Fundrive! All week long we will be collecting gently used clothing, shoes, accessories, bedding, and linens, for which Value Village will pay us by the pound. All money will be donated to the Make-a-Wish Foundation. You can go onto Cash Online to make monetary donations as well!
As part of our assembly, we will be holding a Thrift Store Fashion Show. We will be showcasing how buying gently used clothing can look great while helping the environment and saving you money. We have some very familiar faces ready to walk the catwalk and show off their thrifty finds!
And since we are the Golden STARS, CTV will be here at Saint Anne’s to record and broadcast our entire event. Parents – we hope to see you there, too!
All staff and students are invited to pitch in and help clean up our school yard during lunch recess. Many hands make light work!
We will be reducing our carbon footprint by running our Earth Hour campaign at school, where we will stop using all electricity for a minimum of one hour. Families will be given a pledge sheet to run their own Earth Hour challenge at home, too!
It’s Zero Waste Lunch day! We are challenging all Golden Stars to pack a lunch that contains absolutely NO garbage or recycling items. Are you up for the challenge?
Live Green Spirit Day – green shirts, green pants, green socks, green underwear! We want you to wear as much green as possible to celebrate all we do here at Saint Anne’s to live a sustainable, eco-friendly lifestyle.
Thank you for all you do to help our school stay green, Golden Stars!
