Fifth Grade Celebrates Earth Day and Beautifies Campus
With the leadership of interim science department chair Anat Fernandes, fifth grade students ventured to green space by the K-2 playground to learn about plants native to California, how to plant, and the importance of Earth Day.
Over the span of four days, groups of fifth graders worked together to beautify our campus and celebrate Earth Day!
Among the new classes offered this school year, students have the opportunity to take two environmental literacy electives: Tipping Points with Anat Fernandes and How to Save the Planet: An Interdisciplinary Approach to the Climate Crisis with Eric Peterson.
This month, fifth graders headed up to the Pali Institute and arrived eager to start their adventures. When they stepped off the bus, students were greeted by Head of School Alona Scott who surprised students and joined them for a day of fun.
Every September the library raises awareness about literature censorship by partnering with the American Library Association's Banned Books Week - an annual weekly homage to learn where and what books are being suppressed worldwide and by whom.
