Earth Day Wednesday April 22nd!

earth dayEarth Day is Wednesday April 22nd!  Join people from around the planet trying to make a difference.  The Green Team challenges all walkers to walk to school on Earth Day.  We also challenge you to bring in a litterless lunch! 

At home, do things to help the Earth.  Turn off the lights until it is dark out, clean up the  trash outside (if there is any), and make sure to turn off things that use electricity when they are not in use.

Sunnybrae’s Earth Hour: Friday March 27

earth-hour-2015On Friday March 27th Sunnybrae students will be participating in Earth Hour.  Here at Sunnybrae we will reduce the energy that we are using for one hour.  Non-essential lights will be turned off, and electronics will be unplugged.  Did you you know that even though your tv isn’t on at home, it is still using electricity?  This is called phantom power.  By unplugging things in your home when not in use you could save up to $100 per year, plus help reduce energy consumption that in turn helps our planet!  Our Green Team will be challenging all students to continue working on reducing their energy consumption each and everyday.

The goal of Earth Hour is to raise awareness about the importance of conserving energy and being more efficient with what we do use. The WWF’s Global Earth Hour event takes place on Saturday March 28th from 8:30pm to 9:30pm. Participating in WWF’s Earth Hour is a simple way to show you want to be a part of the solution, and it sends a powerful message: that together we can make a difference and reduce our energy consumption (http://www.wwf.ca/events/earthhour/). So on Saturday March 28th we encourage our Bulldog families to participate in the Global event.  Tell us how you and your family will be participating in Earth Hour on our school website.

Spring Safety Reminder

springThe Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority reminds everyone to stay well back from waterways, ditches, ponds and lakes during the spring ice and snow melt.

With spring-like temperatures arriving this week, unsafe  ice and slippery stream banks may already exist.  The onset of spring will bring rain and melting snow, causing the breakup of ice along watercourses and lakes, and high stream flows.  These hazardous conditions can cause life-threatening injury if a person falls into the extremely cold water.

Conservation Authorities across the region remind residents to keep family and pets away from the edge of streams, rivers, ponds and lakes around this time of year.  Especially during March Break, it is important to supervise children and help them to understand the dangers of playing near waterways.

Please exercise caution around any waterbody over the next few weeks and help make this a safe and enjoyable spring.

Get Ready to Generate Some Excitement!

The Simcoe County District School Board has partnered with AMP Solar Group and Potentia Solar to install solar panels on the rooftops of 41 schools across the County, generating over 4 mW. The 41 schools were successful applications approved by the Ontario Power Authority as part of the Feed In solar panelsTariff (FIT) program, producing renewable energy to feed the provincial energy grid. As part of this partnership, students will be able to monitor the energy produced at their school and compare it to other schools in the County as well as other schools in Ontario. Students will have access to real data that can be used in the classroom. Students will also have opportunities to engage in solar and renewable energy workshops and presentations at their school. The preparation for construction will commence March 11 and will be fully operational by the end of July. Revenue generated through this program will be used to enhance environmental learning opportunities for staff and students and expand on energy conservation efforts in our building.

For more information, please contact the SCDSB Environmental Systems Coordinator, Jessica Kukac at 705-734-6363 extension 11514.
