Week of April 16, Earth Day

Hi everyone, 

Before we start today, please email your welcoming story as an HTML attachment to:

  1. Me:
  2. Your buddy at Eagle Tech Academy (on a slip of paper)
  3. Post it to First Person American if you weren't able to do so before. They have fixed the problem on their website.

Next, Concern is partnering with a new global education organization called United Classrooms (UClass) to feature an online Earth Day project throughout the month of April.

In honor of Earth Day on April 22nd,  students (grades K-12) have the chance to create projects which explore environmental challenges in the developing world and to creatively think about solutions to addressing them. The best part is students get to share their projects with other students from 60 different countries around the world! 

The project is now open and ends May 3rd. Four classroom winners will be selected and announced on May 5th and will have their class' picture posted on the UClass website, the GCC website, and will receive a class set of prizes from UClass. 

This is a wonderful opportunity for us.

Please visit this website to register!
