Click here to read about our summer reading initiative:
Are you interested in raising environmental awareness? Do you want to help our school become "green"? I will be applying for NPE to receive Evergreen School status (we will work with the city of Alpharetta) but I need your help! An environmental committee will be created to help plan and make decisions. Let me know if this sounds like something you'd like to help me with! firstname.lastname@example.org
Some initiatives we plan to work toward are:-creation of a schoolyard habitat (already in the initial stages)
-creation and implementation of an outdoor classroom/garden with lesson plans you can use
-creation and launch of an Environmental Club
-expansion of our recycling program to include other items like plastics
-service projects such as adopt a road, adopt a stream, waste free lunch days, etc.
-environmental lessons/field trips
