On Monday, May 11 our Kindergarten- Grade 5 will be participating in the EcoHero Experience when we have a visit from Mr. Eco! Mr. Eco's Hip-Hop assembly was created on the belief that monumental changes begin with the youngest members of society. Through engaging hip-hop music using the universal love for animals and superheroes, Mr. Eco empowers students to become Eco-Heroes who know that their actions locally impact animals and ecosystems globally.
Mr. Eco performs for our school FOR FREE! Our student Green Team will be selling some eco-friendly gear for the week following the performance. Look for our sales booth before and after school! All proceeds will help support this assembly. PLUS our Green Team will keep 20% of the profits to use for a special eco-project at PS 39. For more information visit www.MrEco.org or view an order/information form HERE
