Kindergarten students celebrated Earth Day by discussing ways that they can preserve the environment and improve the planet for everyone and everything living on it. We started the day by reading The Earth Book, by Todd Par, and 10 Things I Can Do to Help My World, by Melanie Walsh. These books prompted an engaging conversation about why we celebrate Earth Day and the importance of conservation. We put our discussion into action by planting Nasturtium seeds in pods. Once mature, we will transplant to our Lower School Kindergarten Sensory Garden to add to the natural beauty of students’ surroundings. Each year the Kindergarten students plant tulip and daffodil bulbs in the fall and the Nasturtiums in the spring. l After the planting project, the girls completed a recycling worksheet where they sorted items like cans, milk jugs, banana peels, newspaper and cereal boxes to understand what should and should not be recycled. We ended the day by talking about the importance of caring for the earth and their seeds, with respect and love.

Recruit unemployed, able bodied youth to provide community services in exchange for opportunities to continue education, become employed, and own and operate their own business. We want to partner with property owners to allow Spectrum Youth Corp members to beautify under the supervision of a contractor. We will use the funds to help improve our website to include ways our community partners can participate to include making donations of supplies and material, machinery, equipment, as well as donations of land that need to be redeveloped and beautified. Community volunteers would provide additional assistance.

Our Project with help instill the values our children need to make a difference in their world. I have researched many age appropriate books written about our environmental issues. Some of the books suggested were, " A World Without Fish", A River Run Wild", " Cloth from Clouds", " The Gardener", and " Not Your Typical Book About the Environment". Just to name a few. After reading these books with the children we will make up our plan of action on going out into the community where we live and make our voices heard.

Throughout the project, students will observe worms and identify the positive effects they have on soil and plant life. The students will also calculate the amount of organic garbage that we used to feed our worms, and later use to enrich the soil and plants in our classroom garden. We will calculate the amount of garbage that we are decreasing in landfills over weeks, months and years. We will understand the importance of the reduction of waste in landfills and how we can do our part to reduce, reuse and recycle to help keep our Earth clean.

Our project will increase awareness about how to sustain plant life.

The work New Voices and the Green Team do is ongoing. This school year puts our efforts into Phase V of work that only started two years ago. This work involved intensive school recycling, a school garden (with the goal to install a pollinator element this spring), and continued street tree care on the block where the school resides.
