Earth Day 2019Top of Page

     What an exciting day it was in the library on April 12th! The library hosted our annual Earth Day Project Contest and 72 of our 3rd, 4th & 5th grade students worked hard to produce 49 recycling projects for the event! 
 Students were challenged to build/create/ or re-purpose/upcycle something out of recycled materials and enter their creation in one of three categories: Art, Useful or Inventions.  Even though students voted for their favorites, ALL who took the time to create a project are winners. Every one was unique and we are very proud of all these students for participating. 
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2019 WINNERS!
      ART CATEGORY: Madelyn & Kate in Mrs. Doig's and Mrs. Lawless' classes for their Mermaid Photo Booth 
USEFUL CATEGORY: Charlotte in Mrs. Miller's class for her Desk Organizer
INVENTION CATEGORY: Jennifer & Ava in Mrs. Brancoli's class & Natalie in Mrs. Goertz's class for thier Trash/Recycling Board Game
        
In a surprise visit by Mr. Lawrence from SeaQuest, all students who participated were treated to a free pass to SeaQuest in Folsom. He also choose ten of our students projects to be displayed at SeaQuest Folsom until April 28th in celebration of Earth Day. Stop by and vote on the one you think is the best, the project with the most votes will win a field trip to SeaQuest for their class! 
A GREAT BIG THANK YOU TO MRS. THOMAS AND MRS. GONZALES FOR ALL THEIR HELP ON THIS VERY BUSY DAY AND TO MRS. LAWLESS FOR HELPING RESTORE THE LIBRARY BACK TO ITS USUAL CONFIGURATION!
