This afternoon we will join schools across YRDSB in celebrating Earth Hour. We will be recognizing Earth Hour between 1:30 and 2:30 this afternoon. This is an opportunity to reduce our use of electricity in order to help our environment. During Earth Hour today, we will be turning off electronic devices and lights, as much as possible, to be environmentally friendly.
Another item that is harmful to the Earth is plastic that gets thrown out and dumped in landfills. Plastic takes up to 1000 years to decompose in landfills and adds to pollution. From now on, we will not be handing out plastic forks and spoons in the office. Please make sure you send a utensil from home that your child can wash and reuse if it is needed for their lunch.
Happy Earth Hour!
