April 21, 2017
In 2017, Earth Day is celebrated worldwide on April 22nd. Today, all the FAA students wore a green outfit and were made aware of the dangers of too much trash thanks to a great presentation by the 3rd and 4th graders followed by an exhibition of projects created by the Pre-K3 children based on recycled material.
Since our foundation, Anne-Sophie Gueguen, our Head of School and a true “green person”, has made the choice to create not only a respectful and open-to-the-world school but also a place where children can develop an awareness of the planet needs. On a daily basis, we encourage children to bring reusable silverware and bottles and to recycle appropriately.
Of course, Earth day was the occasion to reinforce this on-going effort. The 3rd and 4th graders worked on a presentation for the whole school. They also made Earth planets out of recycled material. The younger ones also had a lot of fun making flying and floating objects out of what is usually discarded material. To finish this very special day, the whole school went to the neighborhood streets to clean up and recycle some more wasted resources and decorated our school with plants in pots specially made by the Pre-K3 class as well.
On Saturday, April 22nd, some FAA parents, staff and children will participate in the 5K Run at Liberty State Park in Jersey City and in Riveredge. More info here. All together we can make a difference and help saving our planet!
