The Lafayette 2017-18 Green Team is here! What is the Green Team? A Green Team is a group of students ready to take action to become environmental stewards at Lafayette, at home, or out in the community. Green Team activities can focus on reducing waste, improving recycling, or promoting sustainability.
Led by 2nd Grade Teacher Ms. Whipple, currently there are 11 team members, leaving room for 4-5 more students! Interested in joining? We are open to all grades and meet on Fridays from 2:30-3:30pm in the Plant Lab. Permission Slips can be picked up from a folder outside Ms. Whipple’s room (Room 13) or downloaded here. The Green Team does crafts, games, school clean-ups, research projects, and education within the school. Students may also be involved in lunchtime clean-up supervision during the school day, making announcements, or leading assemblies. Our current sustainability projects are a reusable paper program and a Waste-Free Wednesday Lunch program. We are in the process of getting registered as an official King County Green Team (info here). Look for more sustainability projects from Green Team throughout the year!
