Our Mission: Promoting an environmentally friendly world by coordinating and practicing: reduce, reuse and recycle in the DLS community.



We are currently in charge of all recycling at DLS!  We also have helped DLS earn "Green School" as well as Emerald Status through the Macomb County Green Schools Program in the past.  Meeting are at least once a month; and members are committed to participating in events as often as once per week.  Our purpose is to make DLS a more environmentally friendly place.

Our Goals/Tasks Include:
Coordinate recycling events (paper, plastic, bottles, classroom single stream, and electronics); educate community to reduce waste, promote reduce, reuse, & recycled; implement new ideas; plan Earth day event(s); complete paperwork to help DLS earn Green-School Status; complete service at or off campus (service); etc.

NEW for 2018-19: SAVE Club is in need of student-leaders!  Positions are available such as President and Vice-President!  We will elect our leader(s) after a couple of fall meetings.  See bulletin in August and September for upcoming meetings.

Mrs. Jacks (see contact tab above) is the moderator for SAVE club.  Students are encouraged to visit room 432 for more information.
