Our scholars and volunteers will be walking/running for a cause! We will walk/run for one mile around the neighborhood and at the end of the event, our scholars will be able to throw color dust on themselves, their friends and teachers! Scholars will be paying to walk/run, however there will be expenses such as water, color dust, t'shirts and snacks.
I am creating awareness through art work , a picture says more than thousands of words
After developing a community map and brainstorming our own wonderings students called upon a community focus. They are seeking community leaders to support their first focus .Launching our studies with a recognition of International Peace Day we created poems and illustrations and our first cause this year is to support humane treatment of animals close to our community. We will write letters to the city mayor and petition community leaders to examine the treatment of the animals at the Central Park Carriage. Last year our petitions were recognized by President Obama. Through small changes and actions we can make a difference.We recently completed investigations of endangered animals and published petitions which we shated school wide.
