Thursday, April 22nd, was Earth Day! Earth Day is an annual event to demonstrate support for environment protection! Here at the Early Childhood Center, we have been teaching our learners about what Earth is all about by helping them understand how to respect and care for animal and plant life, natural resources, and their habitats. We discussed the steps in a plant life cycle as well!
On Friday, April 23rd, our Pre-K & Kindergarten in-person learners planted TWO plants each outside in front of our Early Childhood Center building to celebrate Earth Day! Thank you to Assemblywoman Melissa Miller for donating the flowers to our beautiful school.
Earth Day is about raising awareness about the importance of protecting our planet! Flowers help the environment around us in many ways! Flowers benefit the environment by creating more carbon dioxide absorbing and oxygen-radiating plants. Ultimately, flowers play a vital role in cleaning up other parts of our world!
Michele DiCeglio created a "Flower Shop" outside of the building for our youngest learners to "shop" for their flowers. Teachers and staff, Superintendent Dr. Ann Pedersen, Principal Mrs. Tariq & Custodian Anthony Ferraro all participated in planting & watering our new flowers around our building with our learners! It was a beautiful event!
Plants and flowers don't only add beauty to our beautiful Early Childhood Center but will greatly benefit our environment!
