Mississippi Earth Day Groceries Reports - 1998
Our school, Arlington Elementary School, in Pascagoula, MS decorated 550 bags
for an Earth Day project. The bags were donated by Jerry Lee's in Pascagoula.
This was a terrific project, and all students grades kindergarten through fifth
enjoyed the activity!! Our preschool developmentally delayed students also
participated. We look forward to doing it again next year! Several of our
parents commented how nice it was to receive groceries in such a nicely
environmentally friendly bag.

Thames elementary school in Hattiesburg, MS completed
1000 grocery bags. Students will deliver these bags to our
local Jitney Jungle grocery store this Saturday. We are also

cat and dog food. We are also recycling aluminum cans and
using this money for the rebuilding of our local animal
shelter that burned down last year.
On Earth Day all 1000 students will hold hands and make a
circle around the school. We will pass a globe which
symbolizes that we must all take responsibility for the
Earth. The students are very careful not to drop the globe.

Oxford Middle School is delivering 1,000 EarthDay grocery bags to Kroger
which donated the bags for the school's use. They are FANTASTIC.
What an enjoyable and meaningful project! My 45 students decorated 260
grocery bags with public awareness art and messages about the importance
of "saving the Earth." These 5th and 6th graders' bags will be
distributed at our local Kroger and FoodMax stores. I do not have the
equipment to scan these images, but I can send you a "still" shot of some
of our bags...they look great! Thanks for a great project!
