Stewart Elem. School
Lower Burrell, PAUSA
We decorated 450 bags!
About our project: Every child in our school had the opportunity to decorate a bag for Earth Day. We did this last year and the children were very eager to participate again. They like the idea of having their work available to the public. They had some great ideas to put on the bags. The lower grades used ideas taken from "Copycat" last year.

Mosherville Elem. School
We decorated 250 bags!
About our project: Our PTO picked up the bags from P&C in Elmira, NY. The children decorated them with a message about recycling and not wasting. Even the Kindergarten children were able to draw pictures with a good message about saving the Earth. We returned the bags in time for the store to pass out on the 22nd. Some of the families were waiting to grocery shop on Sat., to see whose bag they would receive.

Kunkel Elementary School
We decorated 500 bags!
About our project: This is the third year Kunkel has participated in the Earth Day Groceries Project. We decorated nearly 500 bags for Fox's Market. The children came up with clever slogans and pictures. They were very excited about the project. The third graders were invited to tour the store. They saw their bags being packed for shoppers and some bags were on display. They also saw how a business can recycle plastics, cardboard, and styrofoam. A happy shopper sent us a thank you note. She thanked the children of our school for caring about our world. Some pictures appeared in the local weekly newspaper. The children look forward to decorating more bags next year.
