Pre-Schoolers Celebrate 7th Annual Root for Earth Week at Goddard School

Pre-Schoolers Celebrate 7th Annual Root for Earth Week at Goddard School

On Monday, April 17th, preschoolers at The Goddard School (www.goddardschool.com) located in Hartford-New Haven, along with over 460 other Goddard School locations nationwide, kicked off the 7th annual Root for Earth initiative.  While the children learn about eco-friendly topics throughout the year, this week especially celebrated learning about the environment and what it means to be a good environmental steward.

During Root for Earth, preschoolers engaged in a range of activities such as hosting a recycled runway fashion show, building instruments from recycled materials, gardening/composting, and other eco-friendly projects inspired by STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math).  These projects foster creativity and imagination while giving children the opportunity to learn about recycling, going green and preserving the world around them.

A signature of Root for Earth, appropriately named “Lights Out!” took place Friday, April 21st – the day before Earth Day.  Every Goddard School across the country shut off all non-essential lighting for an hour beginning at 10:00 a.m. local time.  System-wide, the Lights Out initiative saved roughly 3.4 million watts of energy!
