A cornerstone of the Fox Hill Learning Commons is to promote scientific exploration and understanding of our natural world and we believe that even our youngest students can have a huge positive impact on our planet through simple actions. We just wrapped up our Spring Book Fair and for the first time we went completely plastic bag free and asked students to bring their own reusable bag for their purchases. Plastic is wreaking havoc on animal life, especially marine life, and creates unsightly litter that can take hundreds of years to biodegrade. I’m so proud of our young scientists who worked to end plastic pollution in our oceans and in our communities by simply bringing their own bag to the book fair. A perfect example of how we can all work together to make a big impact with a simple small action!
