What’s coming up?
Highlights from this morning’s announcements:
“I would like to acknowledge that this school is situated upon traditional territories. The territories include the Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Mississaugas of Scugog, Hiawatha, Alderville First Nation and the Métis Nation. The treaty that was signed for this particular parcel of land is collectively referred to as the Williams Treaties of 1923 and applies to lands east of Woodbine Avenue. I also recognize the enduring presence of Aboriginal peoples on this land.”
- Hi, we are from the EcoClub. Today we would like to share with you some tips and ideas on minimizing plastic.
- Say no to straws- stop using them
- When your parents go grocery shopping, remind them to bring their own reusable bags
- Bring a reusable water bottle to school
- Pack your lunch in reusable containers
- Give up gum. Gum is made of a synthetic rubber, meaning plastic.
Do your part to help the Earth. Cut the plastic.
