The Macungie First Grade Earth Day Brown Bag Project
The first graders at Macungie Elementary participated in an Earth Day awareness project, in conjunction with Weis Markets in Macungie, called the Earth Day Grocery Bag Project. Weis generously donated brown grocery bags for all of the first graders. Each student designed his or her own Earth Day awareness message and decorated a brown paper bag with it. On Earth Day, Weis Markets distributed the special brown paper bags to many of their customers. This was a great way for the first graders to work with the community in spreading the message of how important it is to take care of our planet.
