Earth Week 2022
Every day is Earth Day at AISD! This week especially, we hope that everyone in our school community will take a moment to think about how they can make the earth and our community a better place and perform an action to do so. This year’s website offers fun ways to engage and take action from school and from home. Enjoy!
More to come! We’ll add more fun ways to plug-in as Earth Week approaches
We’ll be promoting activities all week, and feel free to use these themes or make up your own. Show what you’re doing on these days of the week on Twitter @AustinISDGreen, #AISDGreen and Instagram #aisdgreen #austinisdgreen.

Make an Earth Week resolution to become a certified Eco-School!
Your school could be the next National Wildlife Green Flag Eco-school! Join the ranks of Patton Elementary, Small Middle, and Eastside Early College High schools that have earned this prestigious award.
