NEW KINDER PLAYDATE & EARTH DAY ACTIVITIES
Fairmount Elementary parents will be hosting our first of several Kinder 2010 Family Playdates in the Park on Saturday, April 24, 2010 from 11 am to 1 pm at the Noe Valley Upper Recreation Center playground, located at the corner of Day and Sanchez Streets. Come and meet new Fairmount families. The playdate is hosted by two current Fairmount families who have incoming kinders.
On that same day, Fairmount also needs help to plant trees on the Fairmount Campus, 65 Chenery – just a short walk from the Day Street Park – in celebration of Earth Day! (Earth Day event: Saturday, April 24th, from 10 am to 4 pm) Under the guidance of our certified arborist, we will be planting native trees (coast live oak), as well as some fruit and nut trees to go along with the school vegetable garden. We will also have a potluck, a giant bubble maker, our garden bunny to pet, some ladybugs to release, and other activities.
We look forward to tree planting as an event that will engage both kids and adults in a simple, fun activity that will have a tangible, positive impact on the kids' schoolyard experience, both now and for years to come. This tree planting event is being sponsored and organized by the Quality of Life Foundation, a San Francisco nonprofit startup that engages volunteers to plant trees to build stronger and healthier individuals, communities, and ecosystems.
