The Elk Rapids District Library celebrates World Chimpanzee Day with cupcakes and informational display
I will research a recipe and make cupcakes that have ingredients that do not harm chimpanzees or the environment. I will have a craft for children to take and make at home that will teach them about the chimpanzee. I will have books and information available to library patrons so they can learn how to help the chimpanzees.
We will educate teachers and staff about the importance of composting. We will share and distribute composting buckets to each classroom. We will designate a specific place in the garden for a compost pile and build the appropriate container.
Duhovka Montessori School will work with an organization called HelPes. They will visit our school and discuss the jobs that service dogs provide disabled people. The children and families of Duhovka Montessori school will raise money for the HelPes organization, so that they may hire more trained staff members in order to train more service dogs for those in need.
The children of Duhovka Montessori School will decorate, write, and send holiday cards to the elderly people of Domov pro seniory Elisky Purkynove (Home for Senior Citizens). The children and their families will prepare crafts and baked goods that will be sold at our Winter Concert to raise money for the home.
- We visit each others' schools and plan fun events together, such as picnics, play games and holiday workshops, etc. - We will raise money to help them purchase a new specially-fitted vehicle to transport the children of Pink Crocodile.
We have crafted a bike rack proposal and will present it to the administration.
The project will teach through service learning how to establish their own social project and how to impact on others. We will use social project management tools, communication skills and the development of their projects.
We are hosting a workshop at Barnes and Noble on June 30th from 12-4. At the workshop we will dissect mobile phones and identify the metals inside them, have a discussion about where these metals came from and why they are important to recycle, and introduce the idea of Fairphone Smartphones and Fair Trade Electronics. We are raising awareness of ape conservation and fundraising for Camp Friendship's annual summer retreat to Maine.
We will go out in the city and conduct a survey to determine what needs are most dire for the refugees living in Greece.
By obtaining umbrellas for our garden, we will create a comfortable classroom space where students can learn about growing their own food, plant life, the environment and giving back to our community.
