Pembroke Pines, FL… April 17, 2017…The students at Pembroke Pines Charter Elementary School East Campus participate year round in creating awareness and helping to keep planet earth healthy.  Students participate in beach clean-ups, plant native plants for butterflies and other pollinators and much more.

 Earth Day Activities at PPCS – East Campus

Students begin each day with the Earth Planet Pledge:  “I Pledge Allegiance to the Earth and all the life which it supports. One Planet, in our care, irreplaceable, with Sustenance and respect for all.”

Grocery Bags: Students will decorate paper grocery bags with Earth Day slogans, quotes and drawings, which will be given to customers shopping at the Publix near the school (Miramar Commons).  This is the third year students have participated in the earth day bag events.

Earth Day Gardening: Spring is a great time to reenergize the earth. Students will help protect and restore the planet by planting native flowers, fruits and vegetables in the schools’ Art in Bloom Garden. Students will use organic fertilizer to help nourish the earth and the plants selected will serve as a food source, for birds, butterflies and bees.
Campus Clean-Up:  Every day before the conclusion of each Science class, students will pick up trash on the school grounds, parking areas and portions of Hiatus Road.  Students will hold signs stating “Save the Planet! Protect the Earth!” and students will recite, “Clean Up, Pick Up, It’s all UP to YOU!” as they pick up the trash.
