The Green Team

Green Team

 

The school’s Green Team, launched in May 2010, focuses on encouraging environmentally sustainable practices both at the school and at home. Team initiatives include:

* An 8-week Cool the Earth program to encourage students and their families to take action to slow climate change.

* An EarthLab garden program (formerly C.O.M.P.O.S.T) that helps kids learn the importance of protecting the environment through focusing on growing the school’s garden

* A Zero Waste Lunch program that encourages kids to compost and reduce throwaway items in their lunchboxes

* Enhanced schoolwide recycling and “greening” of school events

* A walking and carpooling program

* Paper reduction in parent communication

* Enhanced coordination with local creek and park cleanup activities

* Energy efficiency measures in existing school facilities
