The Earth

Lots has been happening at Saint David's in preparation for Earth Day.  The EAAC (Environmental Awareness and Action Committee) has been hard at work.  In addition to the school's year long commitment to recycling bottle caps, see link for a CBS 5PM News story on the boys' cap collecting efforts to date,

we also held an "oven free" lunch today and presented a special slide show to the boys on the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling, with a special focus, obviously, on bottle caps.  The competition ended today with the awarding of unique trophies and certificates by committee chairs, Jessica Pagan and Lauren Franklin.  In total to date, the school has collected some 190,000 caps.

Some of the delicious "oven free" options offered at lunch today.

The Small Lunch Room before the arrival of the Kindergarten.

During lunch, Food Service providers showed the boys exactly
where all the food SaintDavid's uses comes from--
we are committed to local farmers
and all food comes from farms within 250 miles of the school.

Our centerpieces on each table.

class today.  Notice the absence of the cap.
