School Story in Action 2023-2024 

April 26, 2024 

As we recognized Earth Day on Monday, April 22, this week we would like to focus on the Steves Green Team. The Steves Green Team acts upon initiatives that help our earth all year long. Schools biggest use of energy is heating. Three days this year we challenged students to wear sweaters instead of turning up the heat. We also encouraged students to close the outside doors as quickly as possible to keep heat inside. 


Reducing the amount of recyclable material that goes into our school garbage is another major initiative. Simply by removing flexible plastics and from our garbage, we keep three to four huge bags from going to the landfill EVERY WEEK! Keeping the size of the landfill smaller is important because landfills create gases that are poisonous for us to breathe and leaches pollutants into our waterways. 


Students also think of their own initiatives and learn more about the bad effects of cars idling and collecting markers from each classroom to be recycled. 


Gardening is also a part of being green: by growing and taking care of plants, students come to understand the cycle of life and our precarious position as part of this cycle. 


This links to our School Story focus in the following way:   

Learning involves recognizing the consequences of one‘s actions.
