How are you incorporating your environmental projects into your school's curriculum?: 
Through the Waste in Place guide and curriculum, we are educating students about litter prevention and ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle. In partnership with CREW, the local recycling center, students are being motivated to volunteer to clean up, beautify and improve local neighborhoods. The creation of a school notes account is dedicated to Green curriculum for students and teachers.
Accomplishments: 
River Clean Up; Field trip to Garden City Recycling Center where students learned how recycling creates jobs, conserves energy, and saves our natural resouces and to the Lee Richardson Zoo eco center where students explored bio-facts and touched live animals; purchased recycling bins for teachers rooms - recycled goods will then be collected by students and put into larger bins that will be picked up by CREW recycling. Participated in Arbor Day by planting trees on school grounds and a local park; purchased litter bags for each student to promote cleaner school grounds
