Tigers Don't Leave Tracks! at Sewanee Elementary

Guest speakers are visiting Sewanee Elementary School this year to share their knowledge and projects with students.

On Sept. 20, William Shealy, Superintendent of Landscape Planning & Operations at the University of the South (pictured), will speak to students about the crucial roles of trees with his talk “The Community Forest.” To follow up on his talk, TDLT! will plant a tree at the school in October, and celebrate Arbor Day in April by planting several new, healthy trees at the school.

On Dec. 13, Bill Haley from the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga will share his presentation “Undersea Wonders” with students, illustrating the impact of single-use plastics on aquatic life, and suggestions for ways to reduce our use.

Other presentations will follow in the spring.

Sewanee Elementary School students will also be sharing cool facts about sustainability and Tigers Don’t Leave Tracks! Actions of the Week during morning announcements.

The next TDLT! Reusable Bag draw is scheduled to take place on October 18! When you shop at the Piggly Wiggly, bring your reusable bags. Doing so makes you eligible to nominate all the students in a class at SES to win a prize. Nominate your favorite teacher, your kids’ and grandkids’ favorite, or write Principal’s Choice on the top of your receipt and put it in the jar. On our draw dates, Principal Kim Tucker will pull a nomination from the entries. Every student in the winning class takes home a tool for making sustainable habits easier – a steel Klean Kanteen reusable water bottle, or a silicone reusable sandwich bag.

Reusable Bag project, making donations when you use reusable bags in local stores, and by making possible our student prizes. Please thank them for their support!
