(Erin, working on the design of her bag)

Wow ! Our entire school ( kids from age 5 to 13 )took a great deal of interest in the project this year. We decorated over 500 grocery bags with many colourful,decorative designs and catchy slogans. A local environmental magazine also picked up the story of the Grocery Bag project and published it for Earth Week ! It seems that kids of all ages really do care about what happens to their home ! The bags were presented to Thrifty Foods ( the Colwood Store ) and they were delighted to take part with our school for a second year in a row. Although still under construction, our home page will feature many of the beautiful designs our students created.
