Grier Celebrates Earth Day
Grier’s eco-conscious club Sustainable Sisters, along with advisors and science teachers Mrs. Kelly Forest and Mrs. Kallie Brubaker, hosted a special event to celebrate the 51st Earth Day during the unexpectedly snowy morning of Thursday, April 22nd.
The event marked the premier of a new walking path through campus that provides identifying information about the variety of tree species found throughout campus. In addition to the new trail, the event organizers created educational stations for teams of Grier students and teachers to learn more about environmental issues and how to help conserve the planet.
To spark some friendly competition, the event included a tree selfie scavenger hunt and sustainable prizes for the best teams. Teachers even had the opportunity to checkout and test drive some eco-friendly cars owned by faculty members and friends. The vehicles included a Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, Chevy Bolt, a Hyundai Kona, and a Tesla.
The event was an excellent opportunity to reconnect with nature and become educated and committed to incorporating sustainable practices in everyday life. Thank you, Sustainable Sisters for organizing this great celebration of Earth Day!
