\r\n\r\nBlue & Green Day~ Friday, April 20th\r\n\r\nEarth Day\u00a0is an annual event\u00a0celebrated\u00a0on April 22 all over the world. Various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. \r\n\r\nSenator\u00a0Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin started the first Earth Day. He was\u00a0disturbed\u00a0that an issue as important as our environment was not addressed in politics or by the media, so he created the first Earth Day, on April 22, 1970. An estimated 20 million people nationwide attended festivities that day. \r\n\r\nWe will be celebrating Earth Day on Friday, April 20th. Students may come to school wearing blue and green instead of their school uniform to celebrate this special day.\r\n\r\nOur students will be participating in many activities that focus on how to take care of our environment.
