Our project will help lesson or hopefully eliminate trash on our nature trail by offering reminders through signs we make and place on the trail. We will also make it easier for people to recycle their trash when they're visiting the trail by adding a recycling bin.

At the end of last year, a small group of sixth-grade students began to develop their Litter Free Landscape campaign. The goal of the campaign is to greatly reduce or rid our campus of trash. Fed up with the amount of litter on campus, students decided something needed to be done. They performed a trash audit, finding that a majority of the trash was packaging from students' snacks and lunches. Our group, EarthSavers, now consists of sixth and seventh grade students. They have begun advertising the campaign by having students and teachers sign a pledge to keep the campus clean. Students would like to have banners made that make the campaign visible. They are writing PSA's that can be performed during the morning announcements and on the student news channel, KSNC. They are also developing games and incentive programs for classrooms to encourage participation in the campaign. The group is working with representatives from GenerationEarth and Grades of Green and is organizing a school wide assembly to encourage all school members to bring waste free lunches. These groups will help our students design a recycling and composting plan, and we are hoping that they will be able to help us obtain covered trashcans. One of the group's future goals is to reduce the waste created by the cafeteria and after school program meal programs. We will know our campaign is successful by observing a reduction in the amount of trash found on campus grounds. Students conduct another waste audit in November to collect data on the amount of trash found in different areas of campus. They can compare this data to that of another audit to be completed in May 2017. Students will also create a campus survey to see if students and staff have noticed a difference and if their habits have changed.

We like to spread out awareness in our school, we want people to join us, we meet every week and talk about what changes can we do in order to have a better world. We make events where students walk, bike, or carpool to school in order to spread out awareness, if they accomplish it for 3 days, they can watch a movie at our school for free. Also when students don't eat their fruits, The Green club comes around and takes them, why throw them away, also we recycle milk carts since many are wasted, we dump the leftover milk and recycle the milk carts.

Our project will allow teachers to present science lessons in an outdoor setting and focus on real hands-on science activities. Students will become engaged with next generation science standards that will allow them to use the science and engineering practices. I have involved several people from our community to help make this happen, including our plant manager and our new school principal. Our Friends of Nature Club has been working diligently to plan out all the necessary materials and supplies that we will need to open our site early Spring 2017. We also the Tree People support who will guide us along the way.

Kindergarten students celebrated Earth Day by discussing ways that they can preserve the environment and improve the planet for everyone and everything living on it. We started the day by reading The Earth Book, by Todd Par, and 10 Things I Can Do to Help My World, by Melanie Walsh. These books prompted an engaging conversation about why we celebrate Earth Day and the importance of conservation. We put our discussion into action by planting Nasturtium seeds in pods. Once mature, we will transplant to our Lower School Kindergarten Sensory Garden to add to the natural beauty of students’ surroundings. Each year the Kindergarten students plant tulip and daffodil bulbs in the fall and the Nasturtiums in the spring. l After the planting project, the girls completed a recycling worksheet where they sorted items like cans, milk jugs, banana peels, newspaper and cereal boxes to understand what should and should not be recycled. We ended the day by talking about the importance of caring for the earth and their seeds, with respect and love.
