TUCSON - On Monday, the first day of Earth Week, a group of students at St. Thomas Preschool and Kindergarten got an important lesson about environmental health.
They learned about the importance of protecting themselves from the sun - a lesson that you're never too young to learn.
"We hope that when we send the book home with a little sunscreen to encourage them, keep reminding them and the parents will understand that this is important for their children," said Michelle Garmon.
Also this week, the students are taking nature walks to help pick up litter, and making projects at the school using reusable items.
