Earth Week Celebrations Finish with a Recyclable Art Show
This past week students wore green, blue and white to kick-off Earth Week celebrations at Monsignor J.E. Ronan Catholic School. The special activities helped students think deeper about our responsibility in caring for God’s gift to us: our planet.
During the week, many students worked at home to create art from recyclables. Students from Kindergarten to Gr. 8 pitched-in for a spring clean up of our yard. On Boomerang Lunch Day, we tried to reduce the amount of wrappers and plastic thrown into the garbage. On Lights Out at Lunch Day students enjoyed their food with the classroom lights off as a reminder to save power whenever possible. Earth Day, Friday, April 22, began with our students taking the Earth Day Pledge, promising to help make Earth a welcoming home for present and future generations. Classes then toured the recycled art display in the library.
“The Lord God then took the man and settled him in the Garden of Eden to cultivate and care for it.”
