Great job to Harte Elementary School for being one of 4,600 schools nationwide that participated in the Green Apple Day of Service. The Green Apple Day of Service gives parents, teachers, students, companies and local organizations the opportunity to transform all schools into healthy, safe and productive learning environments through local service projects. During the month of September, the Bret Harte Environmental Club accepted donations for used T-shirts, animal food, old towels, and blankets from the school community. On Monday September 28, local community members joined students to mark the Green Apple Day of Service in their newly installed outdoor classroom. Students performed a short play explaining their selection of the Animal Welfare Association (AWA) as the recipient of the donations. During the play, audience members participated in using t-shirts cut into strips of fabric to make toys for the shelter animals. At the conclusion of the program, all of the collected items and upcycled toys were donated to the AWA. Congratulations to the students for demonstrating "Harte SMART" attributes throughout the project by Striving for excellence, being Mindful of others, Accepting everyone, being Responsible, and promoting Teamwork!
