The Green Beanz
The Green Beanz is a group of 18 students in grades 3 - 5 who spear head our Green School initiative. At the beginning of each school year students apply for this after school instructional seminar and meet weekly on Wednesdays. The Green Beanz are responsible for creating and promoting the "Saw You Being Green, " Turn OFF the Lights program. They are also responsible for caring for the native species garden and wetlands. The Green Beanz also empty all of the recycle bins each week and pick up trash around school grounds as needed. Currently, the Green Beanz are in the process of organizing a school sponsored yard sale in the 2014-2015 school year. Members of the community will sell their belongings. These items will be reused by another community member instead of being thrown away, reducing the amount of solid waste in the landfill.
