Tomorrow is Thanksgiving: a day of joy and gratitude, of celebrating what we have accomplished and giving thanks for the amazing support from our generous donors and sponsors. In our commitment to social justice and equity, our programs are granted at NO COST to schools, nonprofits, and community organizations!


We’d like to share something that never fails to bring smiles to our faces-- thank you cards from our students! Here are a couple of choice quotes and amazing drawings and letters we have received over the years.


“Dear Planet Bee Presenters,My class has never gone to see bees on a field trip before. I think my class loved it! I hope you do this next year with the other 4th graders. Now I am going to not step on bees.From,Jake”

“Dear Planet Bee Foundation,

Thank you for coming to Oak Grove School. I had several favorite things about your visit. First, I loved the relay race (I won). Second, when we got to look at the bees in their hive. Last I liked when we got to look in the magnifying glass at the dead bees (kind of gross).

Sincerely,

Sophia”


"Dear Planet Bee,

I would keep the bees safe.

Your friend,

Jeremy”


“Dear Planet Bee presenters,

Thank you for coming to our school and educating our brains about bees! I learned that all the workers are girls! I would really like to help the bees survive.

Sincerely,

Jubilee"

“Dear Planet Bee,

Thank you for coming to our school and getting there early. When you got to hear the bees through the vent thing it sounded like a hundred bees were about to get out and sting you. You guys are right, we need bees and fruit, and honey bees are very good to our world. 

Sincerely,

Sean”


“Dear Planet Bee Foundation,

Thank you for coming to our school. I enjoyed doing bee things like the pollination game and seeing the bees, they were cute. I can’t believe I saw a queen bee—it was amazing!

Sincerely,

Isabelle."

Whenever we receive a heartwarming or hilarious note from one of our students, it reminds us why we're doing this job-- to build the next generation of environmental stewards, and in doing so, to work towards a brighter future for our planet and all its inhabitants.
