The Scholars' Strong Actionable Suggestion Box
Students, Parents, and Staff may use this form to share "actionable" or realistic ideas for school improvement. For example: "Let's ask student government to do a school-wide nutrition week." Please share your best ideas and be sure to include "action steps" to prove you have put real thought into this to determine whether it is realistic or actionable. It is always a good idea to run your good ideas by friends, family, or staff before including them. They may be able to help you refine your thinking and action steps.
For now, find the Suggestion Box link below this message. Moving forward, you can find this Suggestion Box in the Morning Message are, to the right, below the Student Government Icon.
Thanks for all of your good ideas!

The Scholars' Green Team want your pumpkins!!!! We will chop them up and add them to our compost pile. This will reduce the amount of waste going to landfills. You can send them in with your kid or drop them at the garden gates at the corner of Beach Channel Drive and 104th St.
WE WANT SOME OF YOUR TRASH
Parents/Caregivers and Students,
We want some of you trash! In STEAM class we have been discussing how reducing the amount of trash going to landfills is one way to help the environment.
To model this, we are going to collect certain trash, organize it, and reuse the materials in school.
The trash flyer linked below details what we will be collecting. ONLY items listed on the flyer will be collected at this time.
Just send the items to school with your kid and they can drop them off in my room.
The materials will be used in the 7th grade engineering STEAM class to construct, art classes to create, 8th grade STEAM media class as props, and the math and science classes for hands on activities.
Thank you in advance for considering your participation.
6th Grade STEAM Teacher and Scholars' Sustainability Coordinator
