Green Team Update

Be sure to stop by our bulletin board in the main hall to read all the interesting facts about the environment and being “green.” Also, on Wednesday, Feb. 22, the Green Team will be making an announcement at the morning assembly about reducing food waste at Washington Elementary. They will also be collecting and weighing food waste and helping students sort their trash during lunch.

And now, this week’s Green Tip, brought to you by Morgan Robertson: Did you know that by lowering your thermostat by just one degree, you can cut your heating bill by 8 percent? So by turning down your thermostat just a degree or two, you are helping the environment and saving money.

Learn more about the Green Team.
