ALLMSES Celebrates Earth Day

Students and staff celebrated Earth Day on April 22, 2015 by having an assembly where students from each grade read a selected poem or an essay they wrote.  The persuasive essay on “Bottled Water vs. Tap Water,” written by EJ Eckenrode from Class 4-303, ignited a great impromptu Q&A session with the entire school!  The assembly concluded with 44 students singing to a song by the late Hawaiian musician,  Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. The song is a mash-up of two popular songs: Somewhere Over the Rainbow and What a Wonderful World.

Happy Earth Day!
