Students apply to be members of the Green Team.  They patrol the school and help us reduce, reuse, and recycle.  They can help be a reminder to our students and staff to turn off lights as they leave a room and to recycle items from their classrooms. This is a great way to get students involved in maintaining our Go Green Certification.
