Earth Day Celebration
This special day is celebrated with an all school mass, followed by hands on activities for all to enjoy. Activities have included painting "Fruits of the Spirit" on tree slices, dinosaur excavation, fossil dig, planting flowers, painting rocks, making peanut butter bird feeders and learning about our school's important rain garden.
Deacon Joe spearheaded the creation of Two Rain Gardens on our Campus
Our rain gardens are depressed areas in the landscape that collect rain water from the church and school roofs, and allows it to soak into the ground. Planted with grasses and perennials, these rain gardens are a cost effective way to reduce runoff from the property.
Here is Deacon Joe teaching about them.
