How are you incorporating your environmental projects into your school's curriculum?: 
We have increased our recycling efforts throughout the school. Have a recycling fundraiser, that the community is involved with by sending thier used ink cartridges, cell phones, and mp3 players to our school. We are in the midst of a school garden to be added to our courtyard in April with the help of community partners. And a walking trail will be added around our school for added activities to contribute to our student's health.
Accomplishments: 
Our Green Team meets monthly with elected class representatives to discuss plans on making Rushton a more sustainable school and community. Next week at our meeting we discuss plans for our garden to be planted in April. We have also recycled 88 lbs. of materials and remanufactured 103 lbs of materials through Funding Factory.
