We have already written a letter addressed to Pepsi asking them to put a recycle symbol that is easy to see on all their products. Two of our kindergarten students went around the school and got 233 signatures and we need your help to get more! Help us by 'liking' our Facebook page and sharing it with all your friends.
Basically a megablocks is when you take a few large city blocks in an area and prevent large vehicles like vans or trucks from entering forcing them to go around the perimeter. The speed limit inside the space is also limited to ten mph for any other vehicles. curbside parking is also replaced with underground parking allowing more space for pedestrians and lowering air pollution.
We are hoping to help our close community by providing warm clothing and food to those in need, and by also recycling/reusing used blankets, coats, socks and shoes, we will also help the environment.
Refugee Sharing Session with UNHCR and IOM staff and Global Perspectives and Research high school students as the start of a campaign - first projects have been joining a FUTSAL (soccer) friendly match and inviting refugee children to join the school's Halloween event.
Each month in the school year, our student leaders will collect 5,000 Rp (about 30 cents) from each student in Grades 4-12. These students are entered to win a pizza party, raffle ticket or dress down day for participating. Once per term, our Student Council and other students (ex. band members to perform) will visit the orphanage to play games/activities with the children, share lunch together and present the donations to pay for their school fees.
We will be making mosaics, wreaths, jewelry and more as a way to educate. We are collecting trash the day after Halloween, for example, and using that trash to create a piece of art in the design of a turtle.
We will make a video and display it on our school website. We will also publish a story in the local paper and finally we will organize an open to the public event to attract attention , interact with our neigbours, work with our community members in order to pass on the message and to raise awareness.
Feeding, cleaning and Raptor aviary maintenance at Wild At Heart- Raptors (rescue, rehabilitation and release center for birds of prey.)
Wild At Heart is a rescue, rehabilitation and release center for birds of prey. Its primary purpose is to rescue injured owls, hawks, falcons and eagles; rehabilitate them; and, ultimately, release them back into the wild. Its guiding mission is to do what is in the best interest of these magnificent birds. Wild At Heart is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. We, and our birds, are volunteer and donation supported. At Wild At Heart we do all the following: Rescue, rehabilitate, and release birds of prey which have been injured or orphaned. Relocate displaced burrowing owls. Manage species recovery programs. Manage habitat enhancement projects. Provide educational presentations. I plan to collect family and friends to form a group. Our group will travel to Wild At Heart Raptors rescue center to help clean the habitat, feed the birds and maintain the aviaries. This will help the birds of prey that have been rescued to have a safe nesting place to recover from their injuries. The chicks and adult owls have pellets in the aviaries and we plan to clean the aviaries with dry brooms and then with water hose. We plan to trim any bushes and assist with hauling landscape debris. We will help birds needing to be fed and relocated to other aviaries. Our goal is to make the rescue habitat for raptors a safe and clean environment and nesting place for healing and recovery.
We allready have recycle bins in our school, but we are not satisfied by the participation of the students. We are willing to spread the spirit of recycling to the whole school community.
This year, as a part of my NHS project, I am planning to teach dance lessons at a local YMCA, for free. These lessons are intended for those who cannot afford to attend an actual dance school. My goal is to use my extensive dance experience as a way to reach out and give back to other members of the community. Inspiration for this project comes from Misty Copeland, an acclaimed dancer who came from an unstable and struggling household, but found her passion for dance at charity ballet lessons. So, I hope to replicate and honor her story making dance available to everyone.
