On Monday, students and parents at San Diego French-American School kicked off a week-long series of activities for their own “Semaine de la terre/Earth Week,” in advance of next week’s “Earth Day.”

Under the supervision of the school’s Green Campus Committee, students planted flowers to spruce up the campus and some brought plants for the herb garden they are growing next to the lunch area.

The weeklong program includes litter clean up, water and energy conservation, and cell phone and battery recycling. An exhibition of art made from recycled materials will be on display at the pre-elementary school.

Also on Monday, French scientific explorer, Dr. Jean-Louis Etienne presented a school assembly on climate changes.

The SDFAS Green Campus Committee will continue to run “green” projects throughout the year aimed at creating awareness of the environment.
