On Thursday April 19th at 9:00 am the Eco-team is hosting an Earth Week Assembly for both schools from grades K-8. At this assembly we will be announcing exciting plans to naturalize a portion our school yard this spring.
Thanks to the City of Toronto and a grant from Evergreen and the Portlands, Essex and Hawthorne are able to create a new nature study area that will increase Toronto’s tree canopy and our ability to engage in outdoor inquiry and play.
The plans include 200 new shrubs and trees, log benches, a mulch pathway, picnic benches, a community notice board, protective post fencing and entrance ways. Construction will begin next month with a community planting day planned for May 24th!
We invite all parents in our school community to join us for this exciting announcement on Thursday morning. Hope to see you there!
