Students on main campus create works for Earth Day art contest
Students in Lower, Middle and Upper School submitted clever and creative art works for a campus Earth Day contest this week.
The idea for the Water Sense Upcycling Contest came from 5th and 6th grade students during their advisory classes. Students in these grades have focused on water conservation all year, with activities such as speakers connecting via Zoom to discuss new water wells, reading “A Long Walk to Water,” by Linda Sue Park and incorporating water projects in their recent outdoor education field trip to San Pedro Springs Park.
For an Earth Day celebration, teachers challenged the students to come up with activities that could bring the rest of the school into the Water Sense movement. From that, the art contest emerged.
Students from 5th and 6th grades made presentations during Town Hall and posted flyers around the main campus to promote the contest. One request: entries should incorporate a part of a water bottle.
