Teaching Green | Being Green | Living Green
Being green entails maintaining a healthy school environment by finding ways to improve our efforts to conserve water and energy; reduce waste; restore and conserve natural habitat; create structures to respect and support the environment; and use transportation responsibly. Our goal is to ensure that environmental issues and concerns permeate decisions and choices made by all in our school community. Here we focus on the second objective of the Green Schools Application: Best Management Practices.
A community builder to encourage participation and ownership of our renewed environmental efforts. At our school, proceeds from this fundraiser benefited the science lab and other inquiry-based activities.
Reducing Solid Waste
This involves our entire school community, including representatives from all segments of our staff.
