I’m thrilled to announce that Davisville Jr Public School has obtained Gold EcoSchool status for the 2012-2013 academic year!
Among other initiatives, our auditor was impressed with our ongoing efforts to create an outdoor learning garden; eco-literacy on the walls and in reading programs; reducing our energy usage; our families promoting environmental stewardship through participation in a summer maintenance program and ABC/JSA Day; taking part in the Bag 2 School program; the recycled art for the fence; and, our Earth Week events.
We would like to say a special thank you to all the parents that came out to support ABC/JSA Days, the green bake sale and have helped develop and maintain the garden over the summer months. In particular, thank you to Anne M, Anne S, Michelle K, and Tanya M., Reh R. and Racheal D. for their enthusiastic support of the eco-schools program (you made writing grants fun, with your smiles and laughter!). And, of course, a huge thanks to teachers Keverne Cenac-Lopes and Leona Breslaw for heading up the program.
