The Riverhead Charter School is holding its second annual Earth Day festival on June 3, 2016 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

The Earth Day event features engaging activities and games that combine learning and fun with the aim of teaching students to take responsibility for their actions and work together as a community. Classes will rotate through the activities and experience the festival by creating crafts and playing games that relate to Earth Day, the environment and recycling.

This year the seventh graders will be designing and building the activities, conducting research and writing letters to sponsors in their English class. They will then train the eighth graders to staff and run the games with parents’ help for the younger classes, while sixth graders will act as guides for the students by leading them in small groups around the 12 to 14 stations.

Examples of the activities planned include crafting birdfeeders and newspaper flowers. The carnival games such as “Bowl-Out Pollution” and “Recyle Toss” all relate to environmental issues.  There will be also be two costumed mascots – a large earth ball and a recycling bin.

This event is sponsored by Riverhead Charter School Community Connection an organization of parents and teachers.

Talmage Farm Agway in Riverhead has donated generously as a sponsor of the event.
