WHEN: April 15th-19th, 2019
Go Green, Inside and Out: Promoting Health, Fitness and the Environment. MES doesn’t celebrate the Earth for only one day, we make a week out of it! In the past, events have included educational programs from the Botanical Gardens, Trees Atlanta, City of Atlanta Department of Watershed, and the Georgia Tech Bee Genetics Department. The SWAG committee coordinates activities for every grade in the school as well as a kick off picnic the Friday before.
The Sustainability, Wellness, and Garden (SWAG) committee is delighted to present Earth Week 2019. This year's focus is on becoming a Zero Toxic + Zero Waste school! Compost Now will help MES offer a Zero Toxic + Zero Waste Lunch
and will return our waste as soil for the garden. Students will also experience a special enrichment activity on Zero Toxic Cleaning
in the classroom and practice energy conservation with a Jr. SWAG-led blackout hour
. Finally, we'll be helping our community to recycle hard-to-recycle items by asking families to bring in old shoes and plastic film, bags, and packaging. To learn more visit the MES Zero Toxic + Zero Waste website
