Today was our Earth Day Symposium. Ms. Sandner worked really hard on putting everything together and the kids had a lot of fun learning about different ways they could help our planet. It was also a great way for our school to come together to educate others. One class put together a Save Tigers project and another showed how you can reuse old crayons and turn it into something new and cool. Our class worked on composting. Our compost bin was on display and we created posters to share our knowledge of composting with everyone else.
