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.
When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.
At Christ the King School, when a lightning strike fells a tree, we make art!
Ms. Noel helped the students paint the "Fruits of the Spirit" as one of the Earth Day activities.
The art work is now on display at the school along Trinity Street.
Inspired by an idea from our Deacon Joe, art teacher Ms. Noel, organized a wonderful activity using "slices" from that felled tree for Earth Day!
In Galatians 5:22-23, Paul lists the "Fruits of the Spirit" as nine specific behaviors that are the result of the work of the Holy Spirit in a Christian’s life.
Students designed and painted images for the tree slices based on the theme, "Fruits of the Spirit."
"Fruits of the Spirit" are: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control .
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.
