    • Start decluttering now: the Sustainability Committee will host a clothing swap at school at morning drop-offs and afternoon pick-ups. You don’t have to bring something to take something! Please only bring clean items suitable for school-age students (age 3 through 15). No rips or stains. 
  • Earth Day Assembly and full day of celebrations: Friday, April 19th, 2024

  • Zero Waste Workshop: Wednesday, April 24th at 6 p.m., MCS Library
    • The committee will offer a full evening of activities as part of Earth Day, including a crash course on starting a zero-waste journey, practical demos (e.g. jam-making and yogurt-making) and the clothing swap finale. Participants will also get a say in what topics should be covered next.
  • Parent-Led Forum on Racial, Social and Environmental Justice, Wednesday, May 1st, at 6pm, MCS Library
    • Guest speakers will explore how racial, social and environmental justice intersect. The presentations will put the spotlight on how children of color and of socially disadvantaged backgrounds are disproportionately impacted by environmental challenges. Followed by a Q&A and call to action.
