Go Green Week
The cornerstone of our school-age public education campaign is OUR "Go Green Week" program. Through a partnership involving City staff, teachers, administrators, community organizations, volunteers and parents, students learn about conservation and pollution prevention strategies such as recycling, composting, water conservation and waste reduction activities. The week includes a variety of activities such as; school site visits by local business representatives, recycling contests, and a "Wear Green Day". Green awareness bracelets are distributed to every student to wear throughout the entire week. The presentation topics are selected by the teachers to reinforce learning that is already taking place in the classroom.
