April 25 Spirit Day/Family Groups/Earth Day Activities:  Are you excited for Earth Day? The Grade 4 students at Sacred Heart certainly are! Classes 4 and 4A are proud to host our April 'Earth-themed' Spirit Day and Family Group Activities. On Wednesday April 18th, students are asked to come to school wearing one (or more, if you'd like) of the following:

  1. Something that shows the colours of nature (green, brown, blue)

  2. Something that reminds us to care for nature (e.g. a picture of a special animal or place in nature...maybe even a t-shirt from a family trip to a special lake or mountain, or any other idea that fits this theme)

  3. Something that is eco friendly or made in an ecofriendly way (i.e. organic cotton...or any other idea you have that fits this theme)

  4. Simple accessories (hats, etc.) made creatively from recycled objects

Outfits could be as easy or complex to put together as and your family would like to make them!  Try to be 'earth-friendly' as well as creative when putting your outfits together. Students (especially Grades 3 and up), might be asked to tell their small group what is special about what they are wearing and why. Photos might also be taken that day with small prizes given for creative ideas.

...Ready?...Set? ...You have 2 weeks to plan your great "Earth Day" outfit...GO!
