OWINGS MILLS - Pre-K Students at the Goddard School in Owings Mills spent time last week learning about the value of protecting the environment with a unique and adorable event.

The Pre-K Recycled Runway Fashion Show tasked students with “upcycling” trash into creative outfits. Each day during the week leading up to Earth Day, the school had a different event to celebrate. Projects included composting leftovers to add to their garden, planting flowers and vegetables, having families create seedling starters at home, and they did a lights-out hour at the school to preserve energy.

All of the projects were inspired by science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) themes and teaching kids the value of recycling, going green, and preserving the world around them.

“The Recycled Runway Fashion Show is a fun, creative way for our students to learn about the importance of recycling and going green,” Tarun Patel, on-site owner of The Goddard School of Owings Mills, said. “Our little learners did an excellent job creating outfits using discarded materials as well as participating in other eco-friendly projects throughout the week to celebrate Earth Day.”
