Bags decorated: 500
Comments: All of the students from Lakewood Elementary in took part once again in an awesome week long celebration of Earth Day ! Activities ranged from releasing salmon fry to planting gardens. But the highlight and whole school focus for the week was to decorate our grocery bags. The 500 bags were dontated by our local Thrifty Foods ( Colwood) store. Our slogans/messages were wide and varied - This is the only habitable Planet...why waste it !, Blue Boxes work ( our recycle program ), Save our one Earth, We are the People of the Earth, Keep it Green !, and many more exciting phrases. We have also enclosed a number of photos of the bags we have designed for our local food store. Last year a number of our local residents wrote letters to our school expressing how wonderful they thought the bags were designed !
