'Go green' : The College School helps UD celebrate Sustainability Day

“Don’t be mean.  Go green.” That’s the slogan Nathaniel, a fourth grader from The College School (TCS) used for his poster at UD’s Campus Sustainability Day

Held Oct. 26 on The Green, Sustainability Day showcased the efforts underway at UD to create a sustainable environment, while demonstrating how others could get involved. For the second year in a row, children from TCS were asked to provide artwork to support the event.

This year, the TCS students focused their art on a theme of recycling. Students in first to sixth grade created posters reflecting their thoughts on why recycling is important, how we can recycle, and what things are actually recyclable. Resourceful sculptures were constructed by the students in seventh and eighth grade utilizing items cast aside for recycling. (full article)
