Earth Day Roadshow

VMS School News
May 6, 2104- Ms. Warner’s fourth grade class hosted DJ Steve Lee of KZYR 97.7 as well as representatives from Walking Mountains and Town of Vail last Tuesday during the radio station’s annual Earth Day Road Show. Educators from Walking Mountains talked about energy awareness and ways that students can contribute to conservation and recycling efforts. The Town of Vail’s Environmental Sustainability Coordinator shared information about Vail's new recycling law and an initiative to improve the health of Gore Creek. Next up was the “Worm lady” who showed students a homemade worm composting system that turns food and paper scraps into plant fertilizer.

The hit of the show, however, was a 15 minute presentation by the fourth graders to the people in radioland about how VMS works to be a responsible member of a globally-minded, green community.
