Thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication to this project. A big thank you and kudos to Tana for her leadership on this project, our community will be better informed and inspired by the voice and creativity of 4J students! My dad will be in town and I will be showing the parachutes off on June 1st! Thank you everyone! Sue Wilson, K-12 Curriculum Administrator, Mathematics & Applied Sciences, Eugene School District 4J • Tana, thank you for your work coordinating this project, and for keeping us in the loop about it! Appreciation too to all the teachers who have incorporated this project melding art, environmental science and social justice education into their classrooms. I can't wait to see the parachutes on display—and I'm looking forward to hearing more about them traveling to the National Mall! Kerry Delf, Assoc Dir. of Communications, Eugene School District 4J Our school is unique in that we celebrate all students’ language, academic and cultural strengths, and everyone is both a learner and an expert. We have been writing a play in my class about what ocean animals need to survive, and how human actions are making it harder or impossible to thrive, and how people can help. I am an educator with the intent of exposing students to the truth about their planetary ecosystem using a scientific lens, creating an intimate relationship with its diversity of inhabitants, and how they can take direct action to help global, national, and local leaders make better, sustainable choices.” -Marcy Hellman, 1/2 blend teacher
