BVN students celebrate Earth Day

Mother Nature provided a beautiful day for the Earth Day celebration at Bureau Valley North in Walnut. The day started with students and staff heading to the playground to plant a tree and sing Earth Day songs. In the afternoon, students in K-2 walked to the Walnut Manor and sang Earth Day songs. After returning to the school, the students in grades 6-8 joined them in working together to clean up garbage around the school, playground and Park District area. The students in grades 3-5 went uptown with their sidewalk chalk and wrote Earth Day messages on the sidewalks.
