The Green Team students at Munger Elementary celebrated Earth Week early, holding their own celebration the week before Spring Break! The Munger staff wore unified Earth Day shirts, students made morning announcements with Earth Day facts, Lowes provided them with $240.00 worth of free outdoor plants and classes signed up to participate in outdoor events. The Munger main lobby was filled with over 90 water bottles which had new labels designed by the 8th grade classes based on water conservation and colorful banners, posters, pennants and recyclable projects filled Munger hallways!  Students also cleaned out their 12 garden beds to prepare for their community garden. The Munger Green Team finished off the week with an outdoor Earth Day parade led by Principal Burroughs as students walked around the school grounds with their posters and pennants to celebrate our beautiful planet Earth! Go Munger!
