With markers, scissors and shovels in large supply, volunteers guaranteed the 4th Annual Green Apple Day of Service at Stewart Elementary School was a soaring success.
Staff, students and parents worked together to improve the campus environment by making posters about the importance of recycling and creating light switch covers which read “Be Bright! Turn off the Lights” to remind everyone to help conserve energy. The volunteers also picked up litter, cleaned the different habitats and prepared the school vegetable gardens for the fall planting season. “We had more than 100 people help us with these projects this year to create a better learning environment for the kids,” said Stewart Principal Britani Moses. “It was a wonderful community effort.”
The Green Apple Day of Service is an initiative to inspire schools to “go green” and highlights the importance of understanding how a campus environment can influence a student’s ability to learn.
