Alternative Energy Projects – Due 12-5

As part of the activities to become a Green School -“Students research and report the alternative energy, renewable fuels or specialized energy-efficient technology in school operations.”  We watched the following video and student choose one of the 10 topics to research and report on.  Each student or team needs to research their topic and come up with a way to report on it – paper, poster board, diorama, video, or your choice.  I would like to have these completed by our next Green Team meeting on December 5th.  I would like to display these on our Green Team board in the hall and do a video of each presentation to attach to the display with a QR Code.  In case they forgot their topic –  Here are the topics that each student chose.  There are a few untaken if you would like to do a second report or switch topics please let me know.

Video we watched to start our learning about alternative energy:

Crazy Crayon Sale

Hi Green Teamers,

Green Team is having another sale, see below.  I have one mom helper and I could use another mom and a couple of kids to stay after school for a while during conferences.  I will be doing conferences so if your child is staying I would need a parent to stay with them.  Here are the details.  Be sure to watch Arian and Waad in the video!

Crazy Crayons sale – the Green Team will be selling Crazy Crayons after school and during conferences on Thursday.  These are made of recycled crayons.  Please help support Green Team and save the earth by buying recycled crayons.  We will also have an order sheet if you would like to order some for gifts. Thanks for your support.  Watch our video explaining Crazy Crayons:

Our next meeting is Monday, November 20th.

Green Team Meetings in November

Hi Green Teamers!

We will need to meet on Mondays in November.    Meetings are next Monday, November 6th and Monday November 20th.

At this meeting we will be creating some public service announcement videos.

Volunteers needed – We are going to start recycling crayons and I have found a company called Crazy Crayons that takes the recycled crayons and turns them into new crayons.  I thought it would be fun for the students to see the whole cycle of recycling and to sell the Crazy Crayons during the Parent – Teacher conferences.  I need to know if there are any parents that would be willing to help the Green Teamers sell Crazy Crayons on November 9th, 15th or 16th during part of the conference times?  Please email me and let me know if you can help, the time and day you are available.

Bake Sale and Next meeting

Congratulations!  We had a successful bake sale and raised $221.26.  More than enough money to help save the Black Jaguar $55 and pay $16 for the supplies to make the recycle bins at the last meeting.  We will be using the rest of the money for our activities this year.  Thank you to everyone who donated, purchased and helped with the sale!

Next meeting will be on MONDAY, November 6th because there is no school on the 7th.  We will also have to meet on MONDAY, November 20th, so we can go home right away on the 21st when our Thanksgiving break starts.

Green Team Bake Sale on Tuesday 10/17

I need all Green Teamers to please bring some baked good or pizza to sell.  Please bring baked goods to the office kitchen.  Parent helpers needed for set up and clean up.

Set up will be outside the gym at 3:15.  Students need to find their sign and use it to advertise the sale, I’ll need students at both the front and back doors asking people to come to the sale and students at the table selling.  Parent helpers needed to help the students.

We will have our Green Team meeting in my classroom after the sale.  Please pick up by 5 PM in my classroom.  I have decided we will stay in my classroom and wait until parents arrive.

I need all Green Team parents to sign up for the Green Team blog.  Go to iblog.dearbornschools.org/howegreenteam and subscribe.  This will be my way of communicating about meetings and what items are needed.
