Official Earth Day Theme
This year, the Earth Day Network has partnered with the March for Science (#sciencemarch)​. The theme for this year’s official event on April 22​nd​ is Environmental and Climate Literacy. At AES, that will mean building on our strong science curricular foundation, encouraging our students to think about the environmental issues that are important to them, and helping our students find a way to actively be ‘responsible, compassionate global citizens’.

More Details
Next week, students will be working across disciplines and in advisory classes – choosing an environmental topic that’s important to them and creating art, poetry, video etc. to share their enthusiasm with others.

Please enjoy this short video that our student Green Team created.
