Students from more than 130 Spring Education Group schools across the country celebrated Earth Day this year by releasing more than 290,000 ladybugs and butterflies into their schoolyards, creating art using recycled materials, making bird houses, planting trees and gardens, participating in community cleanups, and more!
Each year, through a variety of interactive and engaging Earth Day initiatives, our students are taught about their role in protecting the planet while having fun. We believe that it is never too early for a child to know the impact they can have on their communities and the world around them.
The most popular Earth Day event that took place was the ladybug release. Leading up to Earth Day, students learned that ladybugs are crucial to the ecosystem and serve as a natural pesticide by feeding on insects that could otherwise harm the health of gardens, trees and shrubs. Spring Education Group schools teach the importance of exploring nature and taking care of the environment.
