1997 Earth Day Groceries Reports - Yukon Territory
We have a special class of environmental sciences from grade 1 to 7.
We learned quite
late about the project (April 8) and we are a pretty small school (120
students from K-12),
but we managed to decorate 342 bags during the last week!
In all, about 35 students participated in the project (so almost 10
We are pretty proud of our accomplishment and we'll make sure that we start
next year (this project will be on next year, won't it?) and we plan to
challenge the other
schools in Whitehorse to do more bags than us. We also plan to involve the
grocery stores in town (only one was contacted this year).

1995 Earth Day Groceries Reports - Yukon Territory
My apologies, I think I wrote the wrong total for our Grocery Bag
Project. We have decorated 350 bags at C.K.E.S., not 250 as I think I said
in the previous letter.
I hope you are having a good day and lots of fun with the project.
I wonder how your weather is at the moment. We are having nice sunny days
this week, with around 0 celcius in the morning and warming up to about 10
celcius around noon. At this time of year we have lots of daylight these
days, around 15-16 of daylight at the moment. In June we have almost 23
hours of daylight and only one hour of dusk. As you can imagne we do not
sleep as much at that time of year.
Thank you for the neat idea for Earth Day. Our students at
1994 Yukon Territory
C.K.E.S. in Whitehorse were quite excited abut this project as it fitted
right in with our school-wide theme "Earth Our Home". We have approx. 190
students in the school, Kindergarten to Grade 6 and we have decorated 250
for distribution at one of our local stores tomorrow.
We have been involved with the "Green School" Program developed by
the SEEDS Foundation in Alberta for 2 years now and are always interested
in new ideas for raising environmental consciousness.
Perhaps you could let us know if we are the most northerly school
to participate in this activity.
Keep up the good work - we're all in this together!
