Earth Day and 20-minute Vaughan Clean-up!

WEAR GREEN FOR EARTH DAY!
Its Earth Day on April 22nd and at WPS we are doing lots to celebrate our Earth!  We look forward to our Earth Day Assembly followed by our Vaughan Clean-up activities.  We welcome our special guest  Counsellor Alan Shefman to our Earth Day Assembly where we will be celebrating some of the Eco projects that we’ve been working on at Westminster this year.  For example, there will be a special video about the making of our beautiful “School of Fish” project which has been adorning our Kindergarten fences as well us presentations from our Eco Club and Kindergarten singers.  We will then all be going out for some "spring cleaning" of our school and adjoining community park.  Parents are welcome to join us too!  
Everyone is encouraged to WEAR GREEN to show our school spirit and love for our planet Earth


20-Minute Vaughan Makeover—Earth Day                                                                   With spring having officially arrived, much of the garbage that was covered underneath snow is now littering our school yards, neighbourhood parks and our communities. Westminster will be a proud participant of the  20-Minute Vaughan Makeover that will be taking place across the city and on Friday, April 22nd at Westminster.  Members of the community are also encouraged to take 20 minutes out of their day and to pitch in the cleanup from home, work or school. With everyone pitching in together, we can clean up this world class city and enjoy the warm months ahead in a clean and healthy environment.
Earth Day:  Earth Day is April 22!  How can you help our planet?
