The Green Team is a group of students ready to take action to become environmental stewards at school. Green Team activities focus on reducing waste and promoting recycling among the school. Kernan Trail has recycling bins for papers, cans and bottles stationed throughout the school in classrooms. The Green Team is responsible for collecting the recyclable items and placing those items in our school’s recycle bin to be ready for pick-up from our community’s recycling company.Benefits of Recycling
