It’s Earth Week and the hallways were dim as staff and students at Bluewater Coast Elementary began their week-long campaign to create awareness for the state of the environment and what we can do to help protect it. Monday’s morning announcements began like this:
“Remember every day is Earth Day,
Whether it’s cold or wet or hot.
Pitch in to save the planet,
It’s the only one we’ve got.”
And that was just the beginning. In addition to a one-hour ‘lights out’ campaign, students dressed in blue and green and Ms. MacDonald’s grade 2-3 class was even spotted picking up litter in lieu of their regularly scheduled gym class.
Our kids are watching us. If you care about the next generation and the future of our planet, make a commitment to form an earth-friendly habit today. Everything we do, does have an impact on the future, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem at the time.
