These graffiti-style “tags” were created with reused Styrofoam. The students learned a print-making technique to engrave and print a symbol that represents themselves. This art project is a part of our cross-curricular unit learning about the environment and our efforts to reduce, reuse, and recycle.

Students from Mr Catrillo’s class working with grade 12 students in Mrs. Schenk’s class in the drafting room working with the 3D printer creating plans for our re designed library.

These art projects, created by the students in Mme. Farstad and Mme. Verbeek’s classes, are inspired by our work “thinking with” Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas, author and artist of Le vol du colibri (Flight of the Hummingbird). This legend sparked the beginning of our integrated unit studying environmental protection. The story challenges readers to be like the hummingbird in the story and do whatever they can to help preserve the environment. Our classes received Yahgulanaas’ permission prior to engaging in this art project.

The students in Mme. Verbeek and Mme. Farstad’s classes have been working on a classroom waste reduction project. The project began with measuring the volume of the garbage, recycling, and compost bins by filling up each bin with one litre of water at a time and marking each litre on the bins. Each day, students measured each type of waste in our classroom and tracked it on a chart. During litterless lunch week, the students were challenged to minimize the amount of garbage the classes created. The students succeeded in reducing all types of waste and by the end of the week, the class was generating only half a litre of garbage per day in each class. Way to go!
