Planeteers

The Planeteers is an environmental group that meets after school to learn about issues of our planet and our school. They learn how to create positive change and let their voices be heard on environmental issues that are important to them.

On Monday, April 17, the 4th and 5th grade Planeteer group hosted a Planeteer reunion! We had the pleasure of visiting with some of the Planeteers from the past several years, who are now in Middle and Upper Schools.

Former Planeteers shared with each other the things their groups had accomplished from letter writing, bringing composting and safer nontoxic cleansers to our school to writing letters to the President. The students spoke about how they began to take leadership roles around environmental concerns. They reminisced about fun times and the lasting memories they had as Planeteers.

The current 4th and 5th graders also shared the work that they are doing. It was very inspiring for the younger Planeteers to hear from older students about student government at D-E and how to continue to create positive change in our world.

We ended with food and song!

Well done, Planeteers!
