Kid's Day heads local Earth Week celebration

Children from McCartney's first grade class have also been working hard to perform a skit during the day.

"The play is about the rainforest and protecting the rainforest," McCartney said. "And two of them in particular spent a lot of time writing it and scenery. We tried to include all the other kids in the classroom."

Adison Erb, one of the students who wrote the play said "I really wanted to do a play before and I never did."

Vaia Graves, the other student who helped create the play, explained the rainforest "gives us fresh air and people are cutting them down."

Students in McCartney's class are also creating Earth Day-related art which the committee will showcase during their big celebration at the Durke Street Farmer's Market Saturday, April 25.

"We'd like to encourage other schools [to participate], if they have any art work that they'd like to display that day pertaining to Earth Day," she said.

The committee is also looking for help from the community to make the Kid's Day a success.

The arts and crafts the kids will be making will be out of recycled material. The committee is asking people to save their cardboard egg cartons, paper towel rolls, and ribbon and fabric. If anyone would like to contribute these items, the North Country Food Co-op, located at 25 Bridge St., will hold the items for the committee.
