Sports Swap Day!

Our 2nd annual Sports Swap day is on it's way! We will have students drop off a gently used piece of sports equipment in the morning before school. Then after school students who dropped off an item can come and choose a new-to-them item to take home instead! Green Team members will be on hand to help students organize equipment and to "shop" for new items. Click on the flyer above for more information!  

Earth Week! 

We hope you all had fun celebrating Earth Week with us! Check out our Photo Album for some shots from the different celebrations! Thanks to our PTA for their support and help in making this Earth Week so special. 

Friday's Spirit Day was a hit! We had some super creative costumes at Central! If you have a picture you'd like us to add to our Photo Album please email it to Ms. Potakis at potakisj@wilmette39.org

Just because Earth Week is over, doesn't mean you have to stop being Green! 
Keep bringing trash-free snacks to school!

Going Green Matters Fair! 

Once again, Central's Green Team took part of the District 39 booth at the Going Green Matters Fair. The fair is presented by Go Green Wilmette and the Village of Wilmette. It took place on Sunday March 11th from 12-4pm at the Michigan Shores Club. The Green Team kids were FANTASTIC representatives of Central School - we are SO proud of you! We also had a lot of fun walking around and visiting all the other booths to learn of new ways we can help our community (and the world!) be more GREEN! 

Check out some photos of the event here

The Green Beans met for the month of March. We had a special visitor - Mrs. Geoly came to help our kids start to design our Earth Day display! We will be partnering up with the PTA's Environmental Awareness committee to design two green houses that will be on display during Earth Week in the front of the school. The Green Beans had some great ideas - we can't wait to see which design becomes a reality! Pop Tabs were also collected.
