Sheridan Elementary’s Green Team celebrated Earth Day with a Planting Party on April 22.
As the weather continues to warm up this spring, it provides an opportunity for students and staff alike to get out of the classroom more often and enjoy the outdoors. One way for teachers to provide an impactful educational experience, while also enjoying some nice weather, is a school garden!
The LPS Sustainability team was thrilled to present a new ribbon at the 22nd annual LPS Science Fair – the ‘Going Green’ ribbon. Student projects that explored and environmental issue were presented this special green ribbon and commended for their focus on a very important topic.
There are plenty of priorities to consider for transporting students to and from school each day, including safety, timeliness, and consistency. While LPS continues to excel in those areas, we can also focus on prioritizing another aspect of transportation: environmental responsibility.
Energy plays a huge role in daily life, and a school day is no exception. Lighting, computers, projectors, appliances, and temperature controls all require energy and all are vital to providing productive school environments. What often gets overlooked, however, is where that energy comes from and how much of it we use. Energy consumption is an important issue both financially and environmentally, and this is an issue that LPS has been addressing for many years.
Green Apple Day of Service, organized by the Center for Green Schools, is an opportunity to transform all schools into healthy, safe and productive learning environments
