Centennial's Resource Committee is Back in Action

The Centennial Resource Committee (CRC) had their first meeting of the school year and lots of exciting Green School Projects are in the works!

CLC has reduced their garbage in half by composting food scraps!  What began as a Pilot Program has turned into a permanent change in their school culture.  Students and staff are composting, recycling and saving.  They have gone from a 2 yard garbage bin to a one yard.  Great work CLC!

Pleasant Valley is having a WildSide work day on October 13 form 9am till noon.  Planting trees and protecting the wetland!

Lynch View made $450 by recycling with TerraCycle.  They are creating a garden space and are thinking about school composting also!  LV was also just awarded Premier Green School Status!  

Are you interested in applying for some Green School Start up grant funds?  Contact julie_mack@centenail.k12.or.us and she will get you an application.
