Earth Day is celebrated around the world on April 22nd. The main idea of the holiday is to encourage people to be more attentive to the fragile and sensitive environment of planet Earth.
At our school, we celebrate Earth Day in May, when it is already warm outside and we can plant something.
We held our first Earth Day at our school in 2013, after which the celebration of Earth Day has become a good tradition.
On this day, we invite all families to join our outdoor activities: mothers and children repot plants in classrooms, fathers and children dig up trees, make planting boxes, clean playgrounds, we all plant seedlings in our school garden together. All activities end with an outdoor picnic. In grades 3-6 and 6-12, environmental activities are usually held on this day. This is when students present their environmental projects to parents and other children every year.
