The focus of the Green Team is on school projects such as gardening and recycling.
Our own MRES teacher Ms. Kraus leads this effort, and it is open to 2nd through 6th graders.
The goal of the Green Team is to spread awareness and discuss how to make our school a greener place while learning and having fun. The Green Team leads some exciting projects. Each day, the students perform daily waste audits to monitor the amount of trash and recycle coming from various classrooms in the school. They also organize a food sharing program that allows the members to collect unopened food items in the cafeteria and donate them to a local food bank. With the support of PTA members, the team also works in the school garden.
When: The MRES Green Team meets every other week, Tuesday Mornings – alternating with the Chess Club – from 8:15-9:00 am.
The first session will be September 19
Where: In Classroom 210
