Earth Day and Environmental Awareness

Essex Elementary School celebrated Earth Day early on April 10 with an Environmental Awareness assembly, which included students presenting ways they can help the environment. Catherine Tracy’s first grade class explained how they pick up trash during recess and how they compost in their classroom. Amanda Waldo, Amanda Little, and Elizabeth Thayer’s kindergarten classes recited a poem and sang a song, while Ellen Pariseau and Lisa Badore’s first and second grade classes introduced a project they are working on to create a school greenhouse made out of recycled plastic bottles. Classes also submitted art projects made out of recycled materials to be shown and awarded at the assembly.
