We are excited to have our first Campus Beautification Day (aka Spring Garden Party) on Saturday, May 22 at Sage Ridge. Please join us at any time from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This community service event is being hosted by the Parents Association. As part of this event, our student-initiated Last Straw Club — working on sustainability locally and globally — has teamed up with a not-for-profit organization called Full Belly Brasil, which was founded by a Sage Ridge alum.
We invite all students, staculty and families to join as we bring spring colors to the campus with flower planting, rock painting and rejuvenation of the garden. We will also be doing trail clean up to help our community enjoy the amazing trails running through and beyond our campus.
Hone your green thumb, your artistic and handiwork skills and come join the Sage Ridge community for a day of spring cleanup and beautification. We will also be revealing the SRS Karma Box that was designed by our students. We will have events for students and families of all ages and celebrate our hard work with lunch provided by the PA.
The Last Straw Club is excited to announce a collaboration with Full Belly Brasil on their 20,000 Trees Initiative. Full Belly Brasil is a nonprofit organization co-founded by Sage Ridge alumnus John Dewald ('13) and works to feed families in need in Brazil. While famine is the main problem they seek to address, they also care about the health of the environment. According to its Environmental Initiatives website, “Full Belly Brasil is partnering with schools and environmental groups around the world to help organize and incentivize the planting of 20,000 trees in 2021. Donors have pledged to match every tree our partners plant, so that each tree planted equals an extra pound of food for a family in need.”
To help support these efforts, we have planned a tree planting and purchasing day in conjunction with the Parents Association’s Garden Party event on May 22, but trees can be planted anywhere to count towards the goal. If you would like to make a donation for our club to be able to buy trees to plant, you can write a check to Sage Ridge School with 20,000 Trees Initiative in the memo line. We anticipate selling extra trees at school if your family wants to plant a tree at home! We are thrilled about this opportunity and hope members of the Sage Ridge community can join us to plant trees for this cause! Feel free to email email@example.com if you have any questions.
