Earth Week – Earth Week Points Due Today, Friday April 26th

Posted Apr 14, 2019 | Category: Uncategorized

Monday April 22nd begins Earth Week. Help show a little love to our planet by supporting the following activities:

At School: Collections to Donate

Let’s keep these items out of the landfill and put them to good use again. All week (4/22-4/26) we will be collecting at Ames:

1. Shoes: Bring in children or adult shoes in good condition, which we will be donating to Sister House (www.sisterhousechicago.org). We are looking for “gently worn, new or used shoes” only.

2. Glasses: Bring in your old glasses and sunglasses and we will donate to the Lyons Club for reuse (www.new-eyes.org/join-the-vision)

At Home: Earth Week Points

Score points for the Planet. Check out the Earth Friendly Acts on this printable table Earth Week 2019. Mark an “X” each day you complete one of the acts and get a point with for each “X”. The class with the most points per student earns pizza or special snack! Please return by Friday, April 26.
