Celebrating Earth Day

Families at the Carlton School learned about ways to take care of the Earth at Earth Day Fest last week.

Last week, the Carlton School celebrated Earth Day by participating in Earth Day Fest.  This after school event was organized and run by parent volunteers, staff, and members of several local organizations. 

Families were invited to participate in activities that celebrate the Earth and teach us how to take care of it.  There were recycling relays where children sorted trash into bins.  Families made pinecone bird feeders and planted seeds donated by Green Meadows Farm.  They learned about ways to test water and about global warming. 

Representatives from the Mass Audubon taught the children about local birds and nests.  We also had representatives from Salem Sound, the Salem Recycling Committee, and the Salem Farmer’s Market.  What a great way for our green school to celebrate Earth Day as a community!
