The Green Team is a group of teacher-selected fifth grade students who have an A in conduct and an interest in environmental care. These students devote time before school to perform their duties.
The Green Team is responsible for collecting paper and plastic recyclable items from teachers throughout the school and placing those items in our school’s recycle bin to be ready for pick-up from our community’s recycling company. The Green Team teaches students (and teachers) which items can be included for recycling and which cannot. They also participate in creating school awareness of ecological events, such as Earth Day.
The main goal of the club is to teach students the importance of recycling/caring for the environment, community involvement, teamwork, and responsibility.
