Tuesday, April 22 is Earth Day and Salem Elementary will be going GREEN! We are asking students to wear GREEN on this day as a reminder to take care of our Earth every day :) In addition, we are inviting students to participate in a *Waste Free Lunch.* Have your student brainstorm and help pack a lunch where they create No Trash on this day! You may even realize that there are ways you can have a waste free lunch every day!
The Great Poetry Race Week 2 & 3
Last week, students wanted me to extend the Great Poetry Race over the weekend since it was such a short week. Therefore, last week's poem will be collected on TUESDAY (Catching Fireflies). Students will get a brand new poem to read on this Tuesday and it will be collected on FRIDAY. Happy Listening!
Thank you for all the responses to last week's Padlet on *REUSE.* The conversation will be continued and this week we will be discussing: How to RECYCLE. If you get the chance, please have your First Grader (family members can respond too!) respond to how they recycle in order to help the Earth.
