Second graders in Mrs. Lewis and Mrs. Filarsky’s classes at North Hudson Elementary partnered with Family Fresh for the “Earth Day Bags” project. The project is done by students all over the United States to share and learn about Earth Day. Students decorated grocery bags for customers to use with environmental facts and suggestions to help us appreciate and take care of our Earth.
