Restarted the school's recycling program. Added plants to school library. 1st year: Groomed outside garden areas. Planted 10 new trees,seven London Plane trees and 3 John Pair Maple trees. Established a Butterfly Garden. 2nd year: Planted a replacement weeping willow tree near activity entrance to honor Ethan McPherson, founder of Ike's Aggies, former name of Ike's Green Team. Conducted waste audits two consecutive years. Created a Green Champions bulletin board educating students and staff on what our school recycles.
