Highlands Green Team Update from Amy Scott

Hello Green Team Moms & Dads!

So far this year we have:
–          planted over 100 bulbs in the Husky Woods
–          sponsored an all school Highlands Grounds Clean-up to clear buckthorn and weeds and trim bushes
–          Spent an afternoon picking up trash, filling bird feeders, playing outdoor games
–          made and delivered a non-toxic cleaner for each of the class room teachers with home-made cards
–          wrote 5 songs for our upcoming “green” public service announcements for the News Show.

Our next Green Team meeting on Monday, February 2nd from 4:00-5:00 in Room #14.
We will start acting out and recording our “green” public service announcements that we created this month.

Future meetings are planned for:
Monday, March 2
Monday, April 13th (2nd Monday because of Spring Break)
Monday, May 4th
Monday, June 1
