Are you interested in helping GREEN Edison this year?
Edison's GO GREEN COMMITTEE works throughout the year to help green our students, our school and our everyday culture @ Edison. If you are part of this committee, have an interest in joining or just learning more about what we are up to (and maaaybe getting involved for a few hours?) -- Join Us!!
The Go Green Committee Kick-Off Meeting is Sept 18th, 6:30-7:30 PM in Ms. Hinds Room 9.
Ms. Hinds is our Edison Go Green Teacher Rep (and we are so lucky to have her involved!)
Go Green has a big year ahead for 2019-20. Here's a taste of what we'll be working on (in and out of the classroom):
- K-5 Lessons, Field Trips and Assemblies
- 5th Grade Waste Audits
- Reusables vs Disposables @ Edison Events & in-Classrooms
- The Edison Recycle Cart
- Fall & Spring Sneaker Drive
- Zero Waste Lunches & Student Recognition Strategies
- Reducing Food Waste & Food Share Bins
- Student Outreach & Letters to illustrate that "every student" has a voice and can help create real impact -- to reduce plastic straws, green Alameda, etc.
- Earth Week Events in April
- And much more!!!
We are not (yet) as fancy nor as busy as Art or Garden Docents, but just you wait :) Many ways to get involved and volunteer from 1-hour to more hours. And new ideas welcomed.
We will have a sign-up sheet on 9/18 for this year's roles, starting with one of our 1st events which will be the "Go Green WINTER Sports Swap" to be held @ our October Fall Festival... and we will need volunteers to make this a success!
See you on Sept 18th, 6:30-7:30 PM. Feel free to bring a friend who has interest!
And join our Go Green Committee on Konstella.
