Spring into Action
This spring, the Parent Association and the Board Diversity Committee are launching
a community building program, asking our families to “spring into action” to improve our
environment - locally and beyond.
To kick off this season-long event, we invite you, along with your children, to read The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, by and about William Kamkwamba. There are many different versions of the book including a movie, TED talk, and other iterations of this inspiring story of perseverance, determination, and environmental altruism.
Starting later this month, we will share tips, ideas, and suggestions of ways that you can make a positive impact on the environment. Look for the weekly tips in the Wednesday Bulletin, where we will also post pictures and other updates on the “green” actions we are taking as a community.
And, speaking of green,
Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, the next Growing Up Green Week at Sloat Garden Center is March 19 to 28.
The Growing Up Green fundraising program is a great opportunity for Marin Horizon to earn
Sloat Garden Center gift cards. During the last Growing Up Green Week, our community
earned Marin Horizon a $40 gift card! Thank you, everyone. Please take advantage of
Growing Up Green to purchase vegetable starts, flowers, soils, garden tools, etc. to earn gift cards for our school. Please tell your friends and family, too! Shoppers just need to mention Marin Horizon to the cashier during the specified week to receive credit for purchases.
