Earth Day

Douglass Earth Day 2015 Celebration - Saving the Monarch Butterflies

Earth Day 2015 is Wednesday, April 22.  The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970 and was the idea of Senator Gaylord Nelson.  Since then, the celebration of Earth Day has spread all over the planet.

Douglass will be celebrating Earth Day all week long in several different ways.  School wide, classrooms will be talking about Earth Day and having discussions about actions individuals can take to help our planet.  These ideas and pledges will be documented on cut-out leaves, flowers and butterflies and added to our Earth Day tree in the main hallway.  In addition, many classrooms will choose to do an Earth Day activity with their buddies such as picking up trash, additional art projects, etc.. The kindergartners will be learning about compost during Earth Week and will have a chance to work some compost into the kindergarten vegetable garden.

See the flyer below to get more details on this year's school wide event.
