RANDOLPH, NJ- The Goddard School of Randolph celebrated Earth Day with a week-long Root for Earth campaign. Our goals were to encourage a love of nature and an understanding of our responsibilities to the environment.

Pre-Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Brianna, planned and coordinated the week’s activities. These activities included a nature sensory bin, tree bark art rubbings, yard waste composting and a water filtration system.  The children also made a wormery, collected and measured rain water and participated in a school-wide “Lights out at Lunch” to teach the importance of conserving energy.

Our Earth Week was highlighted by two school events; an up-cycle challenge and a recycled fashion show.  During the up-cycle challenge, each class created a totem pole section by recreating their class mascot out of recycled materials.  The finished totem pole was a collaborative representation of the theme of the school of endangered animals.  Each class wore their best recycled ensembles collected throughout the week.

“Watching the children generate clean water through a filtration system they created themselves, assemble full costumes from recycled materials and build a school-wide totem pole was truly amazing. The teachers worked hard to communicate the importance of taking care of the Earth and the children enjoyed participating in each activity” explained Ms. Molly, Director of Education.

Please contact The Goddard School in Randolph at 973-584-1154 or at randolphnj@goddardschools.com to learn more about the Root for Earth week and/or our summer and school year educational programming.
