that your office may be available to partner with us in anticipation of our event (psa below!) As this is the first such event that I have planned, any and all available information that is educational at the elementary school level will be greatly appreciated!
your web site may be an answer to a prayer!
In december I volunteered to start an afterschool program at the elementary school where I work as a teaching assistant. In January, the "best after school program ever" was born! In february I asked our principal if we could do "a little something" with our campus as it is quite barren - devoid of color, not much in the way of "grass areas" ... essentially dismal! In march our "earth day celebration" was born (psa / invitation below) With April fast approaching, we are in desperate need of : gardening expertise, volunteers, and donations of the essentials for a Youth Garden -- to hopefully include a Butterfly Garden. If you would be kind enough to spread the word on our behalf, it would be greatly appreciated! As well, you will be added (if you wish) to our "thank you list (also below), included in future Public Service Announcements, commemorated with a plaque in the aforementioned Youth Garden, and included in the Thank You program in print, to be distributed to all attendees and program supporters! Thank you in advance for your kind consideration of this request!
Please join us for the forthcoming Earth Day Celebration to be held at Snipes Elementary School on Thursday, April 22nd from 2:30 until 5p.m. and Saturday the 24th of April from 10a.m. until 2:00p.m. We hope to enjoy two exciting, fun filled days complete with hands on activities, demonstrations, and live performances that will provide an environmentally friendly learning experience in a festive environment. This event will bring together our neighbors and our community with an opportunity to raise awareness of issues that concern our environment and promote positive action that will enhance the quality of life and the beauty of our city, starting in our own respective backyards!
