Worcester Prep Goes Green, Brown And Blue To Celebrate Environmental Day

Students A

Worcester Preparatory School went green, brown and blue to celebrate Environmental Day last Friday. The lower, middle and upper schools united to raise awareness and take action to protect nature and the planet Earth. Students spent the morning making posters, decorating the hallways, cleaning up trash and tending to the Children’s Garden. Everyone donated $1 to the WPS Greenhouse Fund that allowed them to dress casually in the colors of green, brown and blue. Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8 were also treated to an assembly with Curtis Blues, a teaching artist who preserves the tradition of American acoustic roots blues music.
