Get up and get out Omaha! With Global Youth Service Day vastly approaching and Earth Day recently celebrated over the weekend, things to help our environment are occurring everywhere! From planting trees to assisting in gardens, kids are on the loose making Omaha a more “green” place to live.
To honor such a worthy cause, Western Hills Magnet Center is planning an entire day full of environmentally friendly events. This Friday, April 23rd, students and parents will walk to school as a way to save our air from the vicious fumes and fuel usage our cars utilize. The students will arrive, eat breakfast, and begin walking the track. There they will be greeted with several surprise mascots from their favorite local teams. This walk will then jump start the Girls on the Run Team’s 5k around the track while the entire school sees them off at the start line. What a dedicated unity of staff, students, and parents!
The afternoon will consist of an all school grounds clean up and working in the school’s outdoor garden, where each grade level has their own plot with its own individual theme. Want more info?
