Earth Hour is Tonight! And here is more info to know…

30 Mar
  1. Join in on something big! Countries around the world are participating in Earth Hour! Earth Hour is an annual tradition in which people switch off their lights to spread awareness about sustainability and climate change. The symbolic effort started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia, when the WWF encouraged 2.2 million people to turn off their lights for one hour to support action on climate change. Since then, millions of people around the world have taken part. Landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, Sydney Opera House, the Empire State Building, Buckingham Palace, the Colosseum and Edinburgh Castle also have gone dark for an hour. Tonight, from 8:30-9:30, turn off your lights and monitors, light some candles and use flashlights, and make a difference. #weareallinthistogether
  2. This Friday, April 5th, students will be participating in the Bring A Book/Take A Book initiative. Each student will be able to find a book of their choice and then purchase more for 50 cents each. If you are able to volunteer your time to help on this day please email brownridge.ps@sc.yrdsb.ca to let them know. We are in need of books for our students in grades 4-8. We can even come to your home if you need us to pick up your boxes of books. Need a pick up? Email brownridge.ps@sc.yrdsb.ca.
  3. Tuesday, April 2 is Autism Awareness Day. We are going to light it up blue by asking all staff and students to wear blue clothing to highlight the importance of this day.
  4. SAVE THE DATE: The first ever AMAZING RACE MATH NIGHT is coming to Brownridge on Thursday, May 2. Based on the popular television show The Amazing Race, Brownridge families will be able to participate in awesome math activities, experience road blocks, participate in modern math learning, and receive an epic loot bag for the family (one per family). Registration will open soon. 

Thanks, The Brownridge Team
