Earth Week! 

Earth Week is quickly approaching! At our most recent meeting the Green Team members finalized our schedule, which you can see above. There will also be posters around the school with the schedule and all teachers have a copy as well. All week long we challenge you to bring a trash-free snack to school. Use those reusable containers instead of plastic bags!

Tuesday will be our Walk to School day. The Green Team kids had the great idea to have a scavenger hunt on the way during your walk! Play this scavenger hunt with the worksheet that will go home to all students on Monday. If you need another copy of it, download it here. Come to the front of the school to get an Earth Day sticker from the Green Team for walking to school! 


Friday will be our spirit day! This year the Green Team kids want to bring attention to endangered animals. You can dress up like an endangered animal or you can just make a mask. Click here for a list of animals to choose from, as well as some links for easy costumes, DIY masks and some information sites to read up on endangered species. 

The whole Green Team met for the month of April. We had some special visitors - Mrs. Geoly & Mrs. Cornwell came to help our kids start to create our Earth Day display! We are partnering up with the PTA's Environmental Awareness committee to design two green houses that will be on display during Earth Week in the front of the school. 

April 1st - 30th - Plastic Bag Drive



Going Green Matters Fair! 

Once again, Central's Green Team took part of the District 39 booth at the Going Green Matters Fair. The fair is presented by Go Green Wilmette and the Village of Wilmette. It took place on Sunday March 11th from 12-4pm at the Michigan Shores Club. The Green Team kids were FANTASTIC representatives of Central School - we are SO proud of you! We also had a lot of fun walking around and visiting all the other booths to learn of new ways we can help our community (and the world!) be more GREEN! 

Check out some photos of the event here


Sports Swap Day!

Our 2nd annual Sports Swap day is on it's way! We will have students drop off a gently used piece of sports equipment in the morning before school. Then after school students who dropped off an item can come and choose a new-to-them item to take home instead! Green Team members will be on hand to help students organize equipment and to "shop" for new items. More info to come!  


The Green Beans met for the month of March. We had a special visitor - Mrs. Geoly came to help our kids start to design our Earth Day display! We will be partnering up with the PTA's Environmental Awareness committee to design two green houses that will be on display during Earth Week in the front of the school. The Green Beans had some great ideas - we can't wait to see which design becomes a reality! Pop Tabs were also collected.
