EDUCATE ~REDUCE ~REUSE ~RECYCLE ~EARTH AWARENESS
Donate to the Annual Fund to help raise funds to buy a garden and classroom composts!
The goals of a ‘GREEN SCHOOL’ are to reduce the ecological footprint while making the school environment healthier for the students and staff. We hope to empower our Red Brick students and community with foundational tools to be good global citizens.
Our ideas for the year include:
EDUCATE ~ our community about practical ways to start being more green
REDUCE ~ the food waste by teaching students about composting
REUSE ~ rainwater for our student gardens
RECYCLE ~ more paper, plastic, and cans throughout the school
AWARENESS ~ EARTH DAY is April 22nd 2012 ~ green activities for the students and community are being planned
