The Green Team is a collaborative group of 4th and 5th-grade students who lead and facilitate environmentally sustainable practices and model stewardship for our school and our environment. Members of the Green Team are “catalysts in the classrooms” and advisers to faculty, staff, parents, and partners and are facilitated by the Director of our Environmental Programs, Rachel Beck. Due to COVID-19, this year’s virtual Green Team will be exploring and investigating sustainability and stewardship within our homes! One way we may do this is through creating our own compost systems, home recycling plans, home critter habitats, etc. The team will also be invited to take what they have learned from their explorations and create a home guide curriculum and kit for families and teachers wishing to embark on environmental education. Opportunities like virtual meetings with partners and onsite outdoor explorations within a cohort will be planned and communicated after enrichments have started. While we will base our project out of our homes, the team will have deciding power on their chosen project and how to carry out research and development.
Callan reminds us that you can reuse Christmas decorations each year until it breaks. Amelia shared an idea about older decorations. She suggests taking older decorations that would otherwise be tossed and turn them into something new. Create a new decoration.
