Summer Solstice Earth Day Carnival

By: kphilli2

On the hottest evening of the year, with the temperature soaring to 98, 150 students, staff, and family members gathered to celebrate the Green Magnet's Summer Solstice Earth Day Carnival and to honor and thank those people who serve us every day: Parents, Custodians, Paras, School Aides, Food Service Workers, and School Safety

Green Magnet Production Company students developed the booths, welcomed help from the Green Team and all other interested students.

Despite the heat, a good time was had by all.  The adults loved seeing the students so involved and commited to their work:
