Green Team

This year Sand Creek is hoping to earn the Green Flag Award. In order to do this we started some new initiatives and grades 4-6th have elected student representatives to help us spread the word and achieve our goal as a school. The Green Team consists of the pathways: Consumption & Waste, Health Living (Physical & Mental Wellness) and Energy. We meet weekly on Fridays before school from
8:00-9AM to implement our pathway action plans. Together we have created our school Eco-Code.

Here is a list of our meeting times by pathway.

Consumption & Waste Pathway

We have been doing many things.  We have put recycling bins in the lunch room and around the building. We have also posted signs and pictures in every classroom and around the building. Our next step is to learn about how to start composting.

Energy Pathway

Our energy pathway is working to reduce electricity and energy usage in our school. For every 1% reduction, our school will receive $800. Each class now has HERO jobs. Hero stands for Helpful Energy Resource Officer.
