The Friday MMR Update


MMR Website

Earth Hour:

This Friday, the MMR EcoRams and grade 11 environmental science class encouraged our school to be environmental champions, by switching off the school's lights during period 5, to do our part in the global event called Earth Hour. Everyone was encouraged to reflect upon the amount of energy we use and the amount of waste we produce during our everyday school hours. We signed our names to a pledge that we will do our part in helping to reduce climate change.

Other environmental actions the students organized included an Earth Hour social media photo booth with our photographer Nathan Teeple, and the handing out of paper straws in the cafeteria to discourage the use of plastic straws.

MMR families are encouraged to do their part during Earth Hour by turning off lights and unplugging electrical devices this Saturday during the official Earth Hour which runs from 8:30 to 9:30. More information can be found at
