Wheatley Celebrates Earth Day 2018!

Across our planet, Earth Day took place this past Sunday, April 22nd. At Wheatley, we celebrated the day on the 19th and 20th with a series of activities and information booths intended to educate and inform our students on issues related to Earth Day.

Some of the activities included:

  • Assemblies with guest lecturers on food choices, water conservation, and careers in conservation
  • Interactions with a 10-foot boa constrictor and other animals
  • Fresh squeezed lemonade
  • Demonstration of how coffee grids can be recycled
  • Stainless steel water bottle sales
  • Environmental T-shirt sales and plant sales
  • Bike collection for the EAC’s Afribike donation program
  • Lot’s of music and tasty treats!

As you can see from the photos, Wheatley’s Earth Fest was a lot of fun for all! A huge “thank you” to Steve Finkelstein and our EAC students for all of the work they did to prepare for the activities.
