The Orchard School Celebrated Earth Day With a Week’s Worth of Service Projects | Photo Album & Video
With nature as teacher being one of the staples of an Orchard education, Earth Day provides an opportunity for our students to spend even more time focusing their energies on various service projects to further enjoy the Earth. It’s also the perfect opportunity for students to collaborate and share knowledge in order to benefit the community.
So this year for Earth Day, Orchard students spent time throughout the week taking care of our 43-acre wooded campus. To kick things off, there was an all-school assembly on Monday, April 22. And to close the week, our awesome Parents’ Association led a Day of Service focused on sprucing up the Orchard woods.
Thank you to our Outdoor Education Coordinator, Colleen Bumford, for working with teachers and Orchard's grounds crew to organize a wonderful week of focused learning.
