Wednesday 4/29– bring Dimes Wednesday

Thursday 4/30 – bring Quarters Thursday

Celebrate Arbor Day!

Celebrate Earth Day April 22 & Arbor Day April 24!

Earth Day gives us a wonderful opportunity to teach kids about the environment and how we can all do our part to take care of the Earth.

Reading The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss,  can help children to learn to appreciate their environment in a meaningful way.

Clean up litter in your neighborhood, recycle, plant a garden or tree, and protect wildlife.

Do your little bit of good wherever you are, it is those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the World.

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.

– Native American Proverb
