Dear WildED, Both classes have been fully engaged in a sustainability unit which culminated in the action plan to reduce our school's garbage. Throughout the process they have been making presentations to both staff and students to increase their motivation to fully participate in our overall goal. They have taken (WildED's) carbon footprint test and committed to at least one more action to reduce their mark on the world. They have done an amazing job and have already been recognized by the Vancouver School Board for their amazing efforts.

Once again, we thoroughly enjoyed our (WildED) program and would love to hear about your programs next year. Take care and thanks, Grade 4/5 Classroom Teachers, Queen Alexandra Elementary School, Vancouver
