Events for Earth Week
April 16-20

Dear Lovett Community:


The Lovett School believes that educating our students to reach their full potential and saving the planet are inseparable missions, that neither can be fully realized with incorporating the other, and that the responsibility for both is shared by the whole community.

We want to empower our students to create a flourishing future by providing opportunities to practice the skills that can make that happen. With that in mind, here are two ways that your family can participate in this year's Earth Week celebration on campus:


11th Annual E-waste Drive


Through this Middle and Upper School Green Team initiative, participating Lovett families divert approximately 6,000 pounds of electronic waste from landfills (and ensure that it is disposed of safely) each year. Collection boxes will be at all carpool drop-off locations during Earth Week, April 16-20, and Green Team volunteers will be available before school starts to help unload larger items.


Including your children in the process of collecting and dropping off your e-waste during Earth Week is a great way to teach them how to keep people and the planet healthier. A complete list of accepted and unaccepted items is available here.


Walk to School Day


Another way our students can become the change we hope to see in the world is by participating in the Walk/Carpool to School Day on Wednesday, April 18th. We do this activity during Earth Week to inspire families to find ways to take cars off the road...and hope that it will happen more frequently throughout the year as well. Not only does this benefit the planet, but fewer cars means shorter carpool lines!


Students may be dropped off at the Cochise Club parking lot, where they can then walk together to Lovett. Upper School Green Team students will be waiting with stickers. To prevent traffic backup, please do not park in the Canoe parking lot or on both sides of Cochise Drive.

Thank you for carpooling and/or walking to school on April 18th!
