The elementary students are going to participate in an ELEMENTARY WASTE REDUCTION STREAM PROJECT.  To begin this project, we need our students to understand the problem(s) that waste causes.  Therefore, we will be doing the following activities:

August 28th and 29th– Early childhood and elementary classes will be collecting ALL their waste for two days.
August 30th and 31st– From 11:00-11:45– 10th grade environmental science students come to the K-8th grade classrooms to explore the waste collected and discuss waste reduction, including the preparation for Ecofriendly Lunch Day.
We will discuss of the STREAM waste reduction project and the selection of students to be on the environmental council. 
Sept 1st– Ecofriendly Lunch Day– After the training from the chats from the environmental science students, all students are challenged and rewarded for bringing a waste free (or at least low-waste) lunch.  Games/activities will be hosted at lunch to support waste reduction.

– We will have a waste reduction in our classroom.  The environmental science students will bring a paper recycling box to our classroom and will be placing aluminium and plastics recycling bins throughout  our Discovery School Campus.
