Scholars' Academy Recycles!

Take a second to properly use the garbage bins. The planet Earth THANKS you!

Parents, Students and Staff,

We are collecting plastic caps and are going to have them turned into a garden bench.

It's not just bottle caps, it can be ANY cap made from plastic. For example, butter container caps or baby food caps.

There is a large blue collection container in the school cafeteria. Just send/or take in the caps and drop them off.

Spread the word! Tell grandma, uncle Bob, tell everyone. We will take all plastic caps.

We are always looking for ways to live "Green". This is a way for our school community to practice Green Living.

Thanks in advance for your participation!!

The Scholars' Academy Green Team

The Green Team presidents (Teresa and Christian, both 11th graders) have been working with Ms. Christina Quintana putting together a HS Green Team. They are currently making the signage for the recycling stations in HS. They have already numbered all the bins in the rooms. This team will take full responsibility for all HS operations. Eventually they will also oversee MS operations (in a few years).

Excellent Recycling Behavior Acknowledgement System

The Green Team are starting an acknowledgement system to promote and encourage good recycling behaviors among homerooms.

Charts have been placed on the majority of the room doors on the 1st and 2nd floor. HS will be participating soon.

Stickers will be placed on the charts daily.

Green: All three bins have the correct materials in them and are in the correct location.

Yellow: Almost all good. But one or two items could be in the wrong bin, or the bins are not in the assigned location.

Red: All three bins have the wrong materials in them or the bins and signage have been moved.

Every Monday a new chart will be put up.

The Acknowledgements for the great recycling behavior will come soon. Below are some ideas.

Weekly

  • Recognition on the Tuesday morning message

Monthly (options)

  • A planned extra recess in the yard on a Wednesday, period 5, or another suitable period (Mr. Bradley will supervise). Mr. Bradley will coordinate with the homeroom to sort a day/period that works (taking into account exams, advisory, etc....).
  • OR a Dress Down day

Per Marking Period

  • Pizza party

Per Year

  • A Recycling Class [Fun] Trip (planned by Mr. Bradley).
