Tomorrow morning (Thursday) I will be hosting volunteers to help prepare field journals for the 2nd, 3rd, 6th and 7th grades from drop off until 10:30 in the Conference Room. Join us when and if you can and I will provide some delicious coffee and/or tea.
Tonite, at garden night besides doing garden tasks, we will be creating signs for the Climate Strike on Friday.
I have posters and markers and paints. Can you craft a powerful message to support our students and their concerns about the future of our planet??
I will also be making, with help, a very fine pico de gallo to go along with quesadillas later in the evening. Come and learn the secret recipe.
Friday's Climate strike events are still in flux, but it looks like a neighborhood gathering at Welles Park at 9:30, leaving for Grant Park at 10:30. Some school families are organizing to march to Lincoln Square after school. I support it all. We all need to help each other to do better and more, and take the difficult political actions needed to make a CHANGE!
On Sunday, September 22, Riverbank Neighbors, an intrinsic and local climate change action advocate will celebrate the Autumn Equinox at Hutchinson and the River, from noon until 3:00. It is a pot luck (no nuts, please), open stage and community sharing. Come for ten minutes or the whole time to help us celebrate our work and community.
Please check the school calendar for upcoming events as I have tried to keep it up-to-date.
