Our students will work in committees to develop a plan, implement it, acquire and analyze data to quantify our success, and actively inform our school community about the importance of reducing and recycling. Students will reward participants with recognition and prizes for helping green our campus.

Last year, our teachers had a very difficult time sourcing milkweed plants that each 2nd grade class needed to feed their live monarchs. With this garden bed, we hope to grow the important milkweed plant, along with other pollinator friendly plants, right on school grounds. Some seedlings have already been planted in temporary containers but need to be transplanted into a garden in April. We have plans for an inexpensive, yet sturdy raised wood bed and will also need to purchase the soil and compost for the bed, which we hope to have finished by mid-late April.

Our campus is considered a living campus where food is cultivated and nutrition is a key element of the program. We believe in educating the whole child and teaching our students the importance of learning where your food comes from is a priority. Our GA 8th-grade students want to share that message by holding a community farmers market introducing our surrounding neighbors to a new parkway garden that we will plant around the school's southern perimeter for the community to have fresh whole fruits and vegetables. Students will clear the space and amend the soil during their GA classes. There will be one workday with community members to plant the gardens. On the day the gardens are introduced to the community, students will hold a community farmer market. We will place flyers on the doors of the neighbors directly surrounding our school site to invite them to the market.

Survey our school on our use of plastic bottles across campus. Look at what kind of recycling centers and steps we are taking to reduce our impact on our carbon footprint and the ocean. Research marketing techniques to convey the message of the effect of plastic. Put the message on our water bottles and the spread awareness with these bottles.

We plan to get dirty and closer to our earth by preserving the California natives, planting other drought-tolerant varieties, and making this part of our campus more aesthetically appealing or our community and neighbors who travel through.

In partnership with alternative transport groups (such as bike sharing companies, the Metro, etc.), my students will conduct outreach efforts to spread awareness on the personal and environmental benefits of using renewable energy for transport. I will do this project in two phases. During the first phase, students will build a solar-powered device to explore the benefits and challenges of renewable energy. During the second phase, students will advocate for renewable energy in their community by creating flyers and posters, sharing their learning with community partners, and hosting public presentations.

My project will bring plants back from the brink of extinction. I will do it by recruiting other people to help in the process and I'll find a greenhouse that someone will let us use.

It will take two months. (1) Students will discuss, conduct research about, and view related videos on bottled water. (2) In chemistry labs, students will test water samples from school fountains, bottled water, and tap water from respective homes for water quality and taste. (3) The findings (data) will be used to collectively determine the action plan to carry on by the stewards.
