This year on April 22, a variety of projects marked the internationally known Earth Day.
The Environmental Club sent out Green Challenges to the student community. These ranged from unplugging devices to trying plant-based foods.
Our 6th graders in Mrs. Crowley’s Religious Studies class reflected on God’s gift of creation, issues that face the earth, and how we can live in harmony while protecting the environment. Students formed teams and drew posters depicting the care of the earth.
The 8th graders in Ms. Barry’s Religious Studies class also studied care of creation, as well as the papal encyclical Laudato Si. They collaborated to present PowerPoints on challenges of caring for the environment as well as suggestions for the Church and individuals to take positive action.
Meanwhile, Ms. Summa’s AP Environmental Science class took advantage of the sunny weather on Earth Day to head out to the Class of '67 Garden to do some weeding and to prepare the garden for planting. And plant they did! On May 11, the class returned to the garden to plant tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers.
