Fonda Thomas
Warrington Middle School
Pensacola, FL USA

We decorated 300 bags!

About our project: - This is the first year we have participated in the Earth Day Grocery Bags Project. Students used paints and markers to decorate the bags with positive Earth Day designs and slogans. Warrington Middle School and "We Care" were written on each bag. We enjoyed participating in this project and hope to expand it next year with school-wide participation. Thank you for this opportunity and we certainly look forward to doing it again. Fonda Thomas, teacher and wellness coordinator.

All Saints Catholic School
Sunrise, FL USA

We decorated 290 bags!

About our project: This is our 2nd year participating in the Earth Day Groceries Project. One of the parents from the school, Dawn Wall, works for Publix and kindly gets the bags for us. Then, the students decorated the bags using crayons and markers. Their creative designs and slogans always amaze me. Once again, they really enjoyed doing this project!

Michele Niemi
Hebrew Day School
Maitland, FL USA

We decorated 258 bags!

About our project: The Hebrew Day School is a small private school in the surrounding Orlando area. When I saw your website I knew that our school would love to participate in this project. Our three kindergarten classes quickly became busy distributing the bags collected from Publix. We announced the Earth Day Project on our morning news program. Everyone decorated the bags so differently! Some students used glitter, some markers, and some pastels. The best part was the feeling and thought that was put into their work. Our Kindergarteners sang a song on the morning news and displayed all of the bags for everyone to see. We were on our Spring Vacation during Earth Day so I delivered the bags to the supermarket. The customers were very happy to use the bags. I am very proud of our students at the Hebrew Day School of Central Florida and their concerns about our environment!!!
