From science to English to art, students spent the day reflecting on how they can reduce their impact on the earth. Students brought in used items and wrote commitments of things they could realistically do to reduce their environmental impact. Students in a French class gave suggestions on how to be green. 6th grade students wrote Earth Day themed Haiku in English class. Eighth-grade students have been working on pollution projects and were able to display the culmination of their work today.
