Middle School Students Complete Earth Day Challenge

Rudy Brandl

Middle School students completed an Earth Week Challenge with sixth, seventh and eighth graders taking on different missions to help protect our planet. Representatives from each class reported their progress during last week’s Middle School Full Division Meeting.

Emily O’Neill ’27 provided details on the sixth-grade task of restoring the Middle School garden. Students in sixth grade pulled weeds and cleaned the beds to prepare for another season of planting herbs.

Douglas Bonner ’26 spoke about the seventh-grade initiative to educate the community about recycling. Students in seventh grade created informative posters to display around campus and share with peers and younger students in Lower School. These posters explain the benefits of recycling and differentiate items that can and cannot be recycled.

Kayla Le ’25 and Jini Looney ’25 described some examples of the racial and climate justice action plans they and their classmates are developing. Examples include a puppet show for Lower School and a fundraiser to purchase a compost bin for the garden.
