It's March! It’s Great Being Green!!
Go Green! Good for you, your friends and your community!
Grab some friends, meet in a park and walk to school. Take a look at all the buds on the trees and the flowers blooming. We’re lucky to see everything springing from the ground! Speaking of luck and green, St Patrick’s Day is March 17.
What else is green? How about Kermit the frog? How can Kermit and all his friends stay happy and healthy?
