The SJPII Environmental Club has been working very hard to raise awareness about the importance of taking care of the Earth. During the month of March, our club members created posters, presentations and announcements to encourage everyone to participate in the global Earth Hour event on Saturday, March 24th, 2018. Here at SJPII, we celebrated Earth Hour by turning off our lights and electronics on Friday, March 23rd from 12:30pm to 1:30pm. But our work continues as we head into April….Earth Month! Stay tuned for new announcements about ways to help protect the Earth. SJPII will be participating in a neighbourhood clean-up. We will also focus on getting outdoors to engage with nature, walking/biking to school and creating less waste. Although our campaign focuses on Earth month, we encourage these activities all year round. Together we can make a difference!
