Going the Extra Mile

andrea Curriculum

Every day at Mirowitz, we seek to inspire our students to say “Here I Am” when it comes to caring for the earth. And our students consistently rise to the challenge, restoring prairies, composting food scraps, monitoring water quality, caring for animal habitats, recycling, conserving water and striving to reduce waste.

But this week, we went the extra mile — literally! We walked to school to reinforce the idea that small steps make a big difference.

About 150 parents, students and teachers walked a few miles to school together Wednesday morning, carrying signs with environmental messages (in two languages) and a sense of empowerment to play a role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We arrived back at school to a sustainability fair, in which each grade level shared creative inspiration for how kids can help the environment.

Not a day passes that we don’t hear students talking about healing the world. It’s the very fabric of our school.

In the coming year, may we be good to each other and to the earth. Wishing you sweetness and joy.
