Lindsay Park and Marysville students met at Rotary Park last week to celebrate Earth Day. They want to say thank you to the Kimberley Fire Department for bringing the ladder truck so they could have this picture taken.

What a great week learning about our Earth and appreciating the beautiful world we are so fortunate to live in. We are hopeful that with the information and knowledge gained throughout the week the students will be proud in making Marysville and Lindsay Park, Earth Friendly Schools l!- Everyday!!

On Tuesday April 22nd the students at Marysville School celebrated Earth Day.  The students participated in an Earth Day Activity Morning. The children rotated with their buddy groups through eight fun, educational, Earth Day Activities set up by Mrs. Anna Keiver.  In the afternoon the children participated in a school yard cleanup using Pitch In bags donated by the City of Kimberley.

On Tuesday April 22nd at Lindsay Park the children participated in a school yard clean up also using the Pitch In bags provided by the City of Kimberley.

On Friday April 25th both Marysville and Lindsay Park students participated in an amazing Earth Day Walk!!   Marlene and Dennis Driscoll collected and peeled 300 Hawthorne sticks throughout the winter to use as walking sticks for all the children in both schools. The children in each school worked diligently to sand their own walking stick which was then oiled and decorated.

On Friday morning with the sun shining, Marysville students started their walk, with their walking sticks up the Rails to Trails doing a trail cleanup along the way to Rotary Park. The Lindsay Park students began their walk from their school to Rotary Park. The goal was that both schools would meet at Rotary Park for a picnic and an Earth Day Celebration!  It was an amazing day!!  The children from both schools did a wonderful job on the walk and were so proud of their walking sticks!

A big Thank You is extended to the Kimberley Fire Department who brought their ladder truck to take an aerial picture of the students and staff in the formation of a tree and sun.

Thank you to Mrs. Driscoll and Mrs. Keiver for your leadership in organizing this wonderful Earth Day Walk for the students and staff at Marysville and Lindsay Park School.
