Beulah, MI USA

We decorated 800 bags!

About our project: Coordinated efforts with Art teacher at two schools, and directly with teachers at a third elementary school. Honor Family Market displayed bags for several weeks following Earth Day. Shop n Save Food Center and Lake Ann Grocery handed out bags on Earth Day. Working through the art teacher was a great success. We plan to do it again next year.

Look at our pictures!

Courtney Brehm
South Haven Public Schools
South Haven, MI USA

We decorated 150 bags!

About our project: We decided to do a mentor program involving the two 7th grade Life Skills classes (currently studying Service Learning) at the middle school and the kindergarten and 1st Indiana Elementary. Last Tuesday the two schools came together at Indiana Elementary to decorated bags. The bags were returned to D&W yesterday and are being handed out today, Earth Day! It was a huge success!! We have a number of artists in the groups! The classes also worked very nicely together!:) Today the students from Indiana traveled to Baseline Middle School and planted a tree, donated by a local landscaper! It was really exciting!
