THE GREEN TEAM
Recycling For Our School And Our Planet
The Green Team is proud to make a difference at Marco Forster. We work very hard to encourage respect for each other, for our community, and for our environment. We are a team of dedicated students and staff who recognize the importance of recycling and strive to instill this in our fellow Roadrunners. Members of the team include Mrs. Geiger's students with special needs and her incredible instructional aides. Together we promote environmentalism and make weekly collections of recyclables from the campus. Taking on this leadership role not only fosters a sense of belonging and teamwork among the students on the team, it also fosters acceptance and understanding among their peers. Our campus has enthusiastically supported the project, and each week The Green Team collects increasingly more recyclables.
When The Green Team first started their recycling project in the 2007/2008 school year, they collected only paper products from the classrooms and offices. Now they are making weekly collections of all recyclable paper, newspapers, plastic bottles, and aluminum cans, and turning it in to raise money for supplies for the school. It is so exciting to see the positive impact The Green Team has had on the campus and even more exciting to see how the entire Marco Forster community has come together to support the team and to protect our planet.
If you would like to help The Green Team, please save your plastic bottles, aluminum cans, and newspapers and turn them in on our monthly collection dates. All money generated on campus from recycling goes back to the school. It's an easy way to help make a difference!
