Dear Skraptacular supporters,
I hope your summers are going along swimmingly, despite Irene's rude interruption. I want to give you all the heads-up about a Skraptacular event DURING SCHOOL HOURS! The more kids, teachers and parents we have involved the better! Whether you could help by adding your child’s class or grade or school to the event… no contribution of participants is too big or too small. Spread the word! If you want your school to be involved, please arrange it with your school principal and child's teacher to confirm your reservation. If you know any eco-educators that might want to get involved, please have them call me. The beloved Miss Ufer, the PS 178 music teacher, is no longer there. Can anyone think of someone to lead the sing-a-long? I'm trying to contact Johnny and Troy, anyone have their e-mail? The event is just beginning to take shape. Camille has confirmed the date and is on board. Dede from PS178 is on board but has not confirmed the date as of yet.
The general idea is....
The First Annual Skraptacular Harvest Eco-Fest
Friday, October 7th from 9:30- 2:00
9:30-11:30-Parade and musical assembly
Students from Muscota, possibly PS 178 and a few classes from PS 187 will parade (with police escort) to Anne Loftus Playground at the northern tip of Fort Tryon. Assembly sing-along and then "Bash The Trash " musical instrument demonstration.
11:30-12:30 - Waste-free LUNCH on "Fruity Friday" along with a composting demonstration
12:30-2:30 -Eco-workshops that classes sign-up for in advance
