Willow Elementary has been proud to participate in the world’s largest environmental club for students, Kids F.A.C.E. (www.kidsface.org), for over ten years. There are 2,000 club chapters, in 15 countries, with over 300,000 members.
For the first time, this year Willow has opened Kids F.A.C.E. to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. The club’s mission is to promote recycling at Willow, and to plant organic gardens in planters around the school. Kids F.A.C.E. funds the annual visit of the Cabrillo Marine Museum for 5th graders. This year, club funds will be used to provide recycling containers to every classroom. In addition, under the guidance of Ben Darin of Hello Harvest (www.helloharvest.com), our club members will be planting organic vegetable gardens in planters around the school. Through Hello Harvest, Willow families can also subscribe to weekly deliveries of organic, pesticide-free, locally grown fruits and vegetables, right here at Willow! Hello Harvest will donate $1.00 to Kids F.A.C.E. for every produce “box” delivered to Willow.
Kids F.A.C.E. is open top all 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. The club is free. Just come to our meetings.
