Our classes are First and Fourth-grade buddies! Chávez is a Green School in Oregon and our kids spent the month of April learning about ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. First graders had guest speakers come in from a local upcycling Art organization, MECCA. They learned how to make art from items that normally get thrown away. Fourth graders went to the Hope In Action conference, where they were able to learn from different local groups about ways they could make a difference taking care of the Earth. Our students were very excited to create this parachute together and to share their messages about why we need to stand up for Earth!
