Earth Day at Nashoba Brooks

On April 21 and 22, bright and early in the morning, Nashoba Brooks students moved out across the Strawberry Hill campus to celebrate Earth Day.
In grade-level groups, students dove into a myriad of activities, each focused on building a sense of stewardship for the planet. Faculty and staff guided students in tasks like preparing the newly restored School garden, composing naturalist poetry on recycled cardboard, exploring the wildlife around the pond, and identifying species of birds. Students also helped clear invasive vines, learning how to use pruning shears and trowels. When these projects were completed, students went back to their respective cohorts and classrooms, settling in to watch and discuss videos about pollution, climate change, and environmental justice. Students also used what they have learned about environmental science to discuss what the future holds and how they will play a part. One eighth grader, while helping plant new rows of flowers near the Moriarty Family Gymnasium, smiled when she said, "It's always a good morning, especially during the pandemic, when I walk into school and am immediately handed a shovel."

From Pre-K all the way up to Grade 8, Nashoba Brooks instills students with the desire and knowledge to protect our planet's unique, priceless natural environment. Earth Day is a fantastic occasion to engage in this important stewardship.
