West U Elementary and Champion Energy Services Celebrate Earth Day

May 4, 2010

Parent volunteers (left to right) Edwina Forster, Cheryl Hoyal and Linda Black celebrated Earth Day on the West U Elementary campus by planting the Black-eyed Susan seed papers provided by Champion Energy Services.

Joining the more than one billion global participants in celebrating Earth Day, Champion Energy Services partnered with West U Elementary to promote Earth Day in classrooms and outdoors.

Champion Energy provided educational materials, printed on recycled paper, that provided hints for conserving energy at home, student tips for partnering with the planet and hands-on activities, along with seed paper bookmarks that can be planted to grow Black-eyed Susan wildflowers.

Worksheets were also provided to allow students to calculate their carbon footprints. West U Elementary administrators, teachers and custodial staff wore Champion Energy-sponsored Earth Day tee shirts to further promote recognition of Earth Day’s 40th celebration.

Taking the celebration outdoors, seed paper was donated to the school’s parent volunteers who oversee the school’s outdoor sanctuary.

Garden clubs, schools, libraries and other organizations interested in obtaining seed paper bookmarks or seed paper planting scraps should e-mail bookmarks@championenergyservices.com.
