Student Green Team


Program Description:

This is a teacher-led student club that  works collaboratively with the Lakeridge Green Schools Program to support our recycling and composting programs, energy conservation, and the Learning Garden. Students also work on other projects to sustain, protect and educate fellow students about Earth stewardship.  This club is led by Lakeridge teachers whose stipends are funded by the Mercer Island School District as part of our district commitment to environmental stewardship.

Who is Eligible:

This opportunity is available to 2nd – 5th grade students.  Green Team meetings will occur once a month on Wednesday mornings from 8:00am – 9:10am in Ms. McLyman’s room.  As a member of the Green Team, students will work side by side with our district Green Schools Program representatives to educate, inform, and build a green philosophy at Lakeridge.  To participate in Student Green Team, we ask that your child commit to 6 out of 8 meetings and at least 1 after-school PTA event where students will monitor composting and recycling. Events include Family Picnic, Bingo Night, and/or International Bazaar Night.
