As a United Nations Messenger of Peace, Dr. Jane makes it a priority each and every year to observe and celebrate the annual International Day of Peace on September 21. One of the ways that students celebrated the day was by building their own flying dove puppets and helping to sew a Giant Peace Dove Puppet. Fourth grade students learned more about Dr. Goodall and her role as a UN Messenger of Peace. On October 10, the students' handmade puppets were brought to be used by the community in a real, live parade! The "We Are All in The Same Boat" parade, held in Dolores Park, was led by Peter Schumann and the renowned Bread and Puppet Theatre. Rooftop's 4th graders created the signs, banners, and, of course, puppets used in the parade. The students used Nature as the inspiration for their puppets, thinking of the millions of creatures that live in the ocean or fly above the ocean. Using the metaphor of a giant boat, the parade asked the question, “What if we could all swim together?” and offered a larger-than-life picture for parade watchers to witness - young and old, working together in peace.

Students learned how to draw Po the Kung Fu Panda and read panda stories such as "Mrs. Harkness and the Panda." Students observed Giant Pandas live at the Chengdu Research Base via Giant Panda Cam and participated in a Virtual Field Trip to China's Great Forests with Nature Works. They learned about the importance of wildlife corridors and the deforestation of bamboo forests, the panda's primary source of food. The students learned about the number of disposable chopsticks that get thrown away after a single use each year (in China alone, 80 billion pairs require the chopping of 20 million trees). We made a pledge to request reusable utensils or BYOC (bring your own chopsticks) and to speak up to help save the giant panda. https://youtu.be/Fd3ptaGfwis The students created videos documenting their participation in the Panda Power Challenge and shared their efforts with the other grades. https://youtu.be/b4bOpDrd12w https://youtu.be/PDhFu73X_hU

The bags are being made to reduce the use of plastic bags that do not break down. In addition, we want to reduce the use of fossil used to make these bags. Our town recently made banned plastic bags. We want to support the effort of our community to behave in ways that care for the Earth and all of the animals and people in our communities.

Today, the mountain gorilla's habitat in Africa is severely impacted by the mining of coltan, a mineral most commonly found in cell phone batteries and the capacitors used in many electronic devices. Ella invited Rooftop students & families to help by donating their old or broken electronics for recycling. The Eco-Ape Recycling Drive began on International Mobile Phone Recycling Day, January 27th through Leap Day, February 29, 2016. Ella and her friends Luca and Dylan made posters, created a video PSA and made announcements at school. They were also responsible for going from classrooom to classrooms to collect donations to the campaign. The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) collaborates with ECO-CELL to process donated electronics. Currently Eco-Cell collects: Cell phones, Cell phone accessories, iPods and MP3 players, Handheld game systems, GPS handheld units, E-readers, and Portable hard drives. The proceeds earned from this recycling drive will benefit JGI.

We will create a hummingbird garden in front of our bungalows using hummingbird-attracting native plants. Because the area is paved, our plants will be in containers. We will select native plants from our region that establish a continuous bloom throughout the year and acquire them from a local foundation that specializes in native plants. We will not use any pesticides or herbicides in our garden.
