Reduce, Recycle and Reuse!

I got to poke my head in at Chapel on Wednesday (yesterday) and I learned so much! It appears another important day is coming next week besides the Dragon Faire! That day is Earth Day - April 22, 2010! Miss Cherie and Amy Miller (Mom of Drew Miller in Blue Door) taught us about something wonderful we are going to do next week to celebrate Earth Day!

Chapel began by singing God Made the Ea
rth. It is one of the kid's favorites! You might hear your children singing it, so let me teach it to you!

God made the Earth and God made the sky,
God made the fish and the birds that fly,
Animals, flowers, trees so tall,
God made everything - great and small,
God made all that I can see,

God made you and God made me!

Then we talked about how God made our Earth and really wants us to take care of it! We learned that our trash goes to a place called the dump and dumps are getting really full! If we recycle then maybe the dumps won't get full so fast! Amy showed us lots of things that we can recycle from water bottles, paper, cans, glass and even shoes! Checking to see if something can be recycled is super easy! All you have to do is look for the 3 arrows that kinda make a triangle! She also showed us how things that can be recycled can also be reused! It was so awesome! They can turn paper into cereal boxes, cans can be turned into a baseball bat, candy wrappers can be made into a colorful bowl, and the bottom of our sneakers can be broken up to help make asphalt! The kids were so excited to learn about all the cool ways to recycle! Something else that is awesome that Amy told us is when you take all of your recyclables to the recycling center, they give you money!!! So cool!

Then Miss Cherie and Amy told everyone the best part!

All next week the kids can bring in plastic bottles, paper and cans to the school. There will be 3 bins to put all of our recyclables in on the upstairs patio. They look just like this.

On Friday, April 23rd - all of the Monday, Wednesday, Friday and PreK kids are going to have a Pizza Party with the money we got from recycling!!!
