Waste Free Wednesdays

Green Club is sponsoring Waste Free Wednesdays in March! Every Wednesday during ALL lunches, a fourth grade green club member will check your child's lunch. If your child brings a lunch to school, we are encouraging recycled containers for sandwiches, chips, cookies, fruit, etc. (no baggies, please). We also would like to see recycled water bottles. If your child buys lunch, we are encouraging him/her to eat all of his/her lunch. We are also encouraging children who buy lunch not to take extra napkins and silverware that they do not need. Children who choose to participate will be entered in special raffle drawings and could win a prize! Please help preserve our planet and be waste free, especially on Wednesdays in March! Go Green!

Save Energy!!

Stop, Drop, and Save Energy!  Don't leave your device in the charger when it's done charging.  To remind yourself to unplug your device, you could write a note that says "take me out" or set a timer.  Turn off your light when you're not in the room and are done using them.  Turn off the water when you're brushing your teeth!  Take shorter showers.  Don't leave your computers and TVs turned on.  Power them off when you're not using them.  These ideas will help you save energy, save money, and think GREEN!   ~Kyra and Reegan

Lights Off!!

We can reduce energy...turn light bulbs off!  Change them to compact fluorescent light bulbs.  You can save 75% of energy by turning light bulbs off when you're not using them.  You will save $30 per bulb if you switch to compact fluorescent bulbs.    ~By Matthew and Justin

TWO Harp Seals Adopted!

We raised over $200 for our Adopt an Animal Campaign! Because of this we were able to "adopt" two harp seals from the National Wildlife Federation! Awesome Job, Hutchings! :)

Recycle, Recycle, Recycle!!

Green Club has been off to a fantastic start!! We just finished our phone book drive and our school collected thousands of phone books for Recycle Livingston!

We are working on our Adopt An Animal project. We'll have a stuffed animal day in January. The money raised will go towards adopting an animal for Green Club. Last year we adopted a Polar Bear. Stay tuned to find out what this year's animal will be! :)
