Happy 50th Earth Day!

           Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainties it brings, we think it's just as important to remember and celebrate sunnier topics, like the fiftieth Earth Day (April 22nd, 2020). We are excited to share with you a free e-book by Recycle Coach in celebration of Earth Day. The "36 Ideas, Big and Small, for an Eco-friendly Home" is a great read.


Ryan Elementary Students also celebrated Earth Day Virtually

Ryan Elementary did a virtual Week of the Young Child, which included Earth Day. Students were asked to show how they are showing love for the planet by posting pictures of themselves doing something helpful to Earth on their Facebook page or by sending pictures to their teachers.  Some of the students' artwork showcased below.



Billie Bote celebrates Earth Day

Willie and Billie Bote would like to thank all those students staying busy helping mom and dad taking out the trash and recycling to the curb during this pandemic. Below is a link of a student from Ryan Elementary helping out in taking out the recycling items to the curb.  Thank you!
