Last week, the RE classes learned about energy conservation by participating in a TFAA game show. They also came up with some great reasons why saving energy is important such as:
* I like having an inhabitable Earth. (high school)
* Without electricity, we wouldn’t have smoke alarms. (1st/2nd grade)
* So that future generations can use it too. (5th grade)
* Stop global warming and the greenhouse effect. (3rd/4th grade)
Next week will be a lay led service and students will stay in service. February 8th will be a spirit circle and all RE classes will begin in room 101/103. We’ll be making valentines for the CARE committee to distribute.
