Bags Decorated: 428
Comments: This was an awesome project! It was the very first time that our school has participated in the Earth Day Groceries Project. Each student in our school Pre-K through 6th grades decorated a bag. Our bags were donated by our neighborhood Publix Store - Flakes Mill Crossing. We were so very grateful to them for their participation.
In our school the Earth Day Project was directed by Mrs. Wall a 3rd grade teacher, however, it was organized and coordinated by a team for fourteen 3rd grade students deemed the ED Committee. Each student was assigned a classroom to make a brief oral presentation on the project, distributed and picked up the completed bags. This was an exciting time for all . Our students thoroughly enjoyed this project and it is our intention to participate again next year. Let's begin today, by making Earth Day, every day!
