Earth Week Activity & Donation Sign-Up!
Tue, Apr 19 3:15pm - Wed, Apr 20 4:15pm
Glenoaks Elementary School

Our PTA's Earth Week Celebration will be from April 18th -22nd! Our Green Team has planned a number of fun activities and projects that'll not only get our student's hands dirty, educate them about gardening and taking care of our planet, but will also help to beautify our campus! See the details & sign ups below!

MONDAY: collection boxes will be placed outside of the front office for the week where you can drop off something from your home garden; fruits, vegetables, seeds, herbs, flowers, clippings. 

TUESDAY: we'll be touching up the front planter boxes from last year's Earth Week with new succulents and soil. Sign up below to participate.

WEDNESDAY: our volunteers are going to be hauling over new mulch for around the big oak tree in front of the school. We'll be having students each help to add a few shovels full of mulch around the tree before we announce the naming of the big oak tree! Please sign up below to let us know if you'll be joining us so we can make sure to accommodate the number of students who will be wanting to participate. 

THURSDAY: students will be receiving their very own seed kit with an instruction sheet and seeds and beans so they can take Earth Day home with them!

FRIDAY: we'll have a mini farmers market with all of the items that have been dropped off to the collection boxes throughout the week

Thank you to Liz Wilkinson & Meeti Iyangar who lead our PTA Green Team and have planned out this fun week for our school and students!
