Recycling Drive– Teachers are encouraging their students to recycle paper, glass, aluminum, and plastic. Students should bring materials from home, as well. The class with the greatest amount of pounds/student will win a prize at the end of the month. Environmental Science students will collect the materials from the homeroom classrooms twice a week.
Green Day– Each Friday wear green to celebrate and help us remember to take “green actions.”
Increasing our green space– In line with Discovery’s month long effort to “go green,” on Friday, April 25, Discovery students will have an opportunity to “green” our campus by planting plants around the school. Discovery families can sponsor a plant for only L400. This will include the plant, soil ,fertilizer, and other materials need for the planting. Students can have the joy and experience of watching their plant grow over the years that they are here at Discovery.
