Green committee May update: More Terracycle, 5th grade thanks, and class party guidance!
Mon, May 13 9:19pm


  1. Thank you for all your Terracycle contributions. All hands were on deck: the 5th Grade Green Team of 15+ students helped to sort and package the mound of collected items. Together, we kept 91 pounds of non-donatable clothing, and hard-to-recycle plastics out of the landfill! A huge thank you to Committee member Spring Hofeldt for leading this effort. We will do another (final) collection in June, so keep saving the items!
  2. Class parties and picnics are here!  Please make them green. We love our park and want to be good stewards.  See guidance here.
  3. Shout-out to the 5-day week’s sustainability focused articles! 3 students wrote excellent pieces. See pages 6-7 here!
  4. We need more fellow green committee members, especially leaders! Please reach out to me if you’re interested. It’s not as much work as you think -- it takes a village!
