Robin Griggs
Thorne Bay School
Thorne Bay, AKUSA

We decorated 150 bags!

About our project: Our school features small class sizes and dedicated teachers who approach teaching with the attitude of teamwork and collaboration. Thorne Bay School students enjoy a variety of activities, including hunting, fishing, trapping, sea kayaking, hiking, biking, archery, and travel around the state. Also, students are connected to the rest of the world via high speed Internet. Thorne Bay is located on Prince of Wales Island and is accessible by a 25 minute float plane ride from Ketchikan airport or a 3 hour ferry ride to Hollis which is located 59 miles to the Southwest. Every Grade participated in the earth day bags, decorating them for Thorne Bay Residents and for the Thorne Bay Market. The project was headed by the Secondary Student's Art Class and Mrs. Griggs.

Kate Thurmond
Sidney C. Huntington School
Galena, AKUSA

We decorated 226 bags!

About our project: In Galena, AK, the Grocery Bag project was used as a local art and awareness of Earth Day '08 started by fifth graders. Grocery bags donated (150) by the local stores and community members (about 100 from homes) were given to the school's art classes. Along with the help of the Art Teacher, Alyson Esmailka, students from kindergarden through 12 grade particpated in decorating and writing slogans promoting Earth Day '08. The fifth graders gave a presentation at a community meeting regarding the project and success of student participation. Many community members are using and reusing the now artistic bags for home and community use.
