The main company, Reef HQ, is located in Australia close to the Great Barrier. Therefore, it would be helpful to do some more video conferences with the company. Also it would be handy to hold an assembly about getting involved with Reef HQ and saving the lives of Dugongs. On national day we could perhaps share some information with the school because national day would link with sustainability.

Our third graders studied weather and climate standards to learn more about the weather hazard of drought. They learned about various drought conditions around the world. Then we learned ways we can conserve water in our own drought-ridden state. The third graders noticed that our cafeteria sells hundreds of tiny plastic water bottles at lunch, and none of them get recycled in the cafeteria. The approach we took was to take data on how many water bottles are sold each day. We used the data to create an awareness campaign for the other students to teach them about how much water is used to make and recycle those little bottles. We sold STEM Launch reusable water bottles and encouraged students to use those instead of getting the small bottles with their lunch. We used the grant money to purchase two large recycling receptacles for the cafeteria. We will use the remaining funds to go toward purchasing a water bottle filler fountain.The district sent out a plumber for the estimate and we are just waiting for the word from the district to move forward with purchasing and installation. All students in the building became aware of the issue. They started recycling the bottles in the new containers. National Junior Honor Society members dumped the recycle bins into the large bin each week. We had water and sustainability experts come to the school to hear the students' solutions. For example, sustainability experts from LarkBurger came and people from Thornton Water. One of the consultants was so impressed that she worked with her company to raise additional funds for us to receive our water bottle fountain.

We have so far done: Information sessions, brainstorming, community cleanups, environmental school theme days, collaborations with student council, and bake sales. In the future we are hoping to do so much more.

We’ve discussed with the students about pollution, recycle and reuse, and so the project came out. 1- The students analyse the consequences of the degradation of our shores. They were particularly interested in the animal part so they did lots of researches about dolphins and turtles, since they are the main victims of this decline. 2- Then, a marine biologist of the University of Salento, who is also a member of JGI Italia, joins us in this project. He helped the students analysing a section of the coast, which is particularly damaged because completely exposed to the current of the sea. We obtain a special partnership with a team of scuba divers as well. 3- In May it’s been organized a day for the cleaningup, the students were collecting the garbage on the beach, while the scuba divers went under water doing the same team. 4- They studied the biodegradability of all different type of waste, focusing on the time, and the permanence in the environment. Out from these researches they made up posters, bookmarks and big panels to publicize the information in as many beaches as possible in that area. Another amazing thing they’ve done is that from all the garbage they’ve collected, they’ve created some beautiful designed items, for fundraising for our orphanage in Kigoma.

As regard as the funds, we won a competition announcement from the province, so we’ve fortunately got the financial help from the province itself.

We are building a garden tower out of repurposed goods. We will be learning about permaculture systems to help build a sustainable, thriving garden. Our goal is to keep our garden producing food throughout the year.

We will write a proposal to the Administration Office to ask them to stop supplying bottled water during various school events (such as Open House) as well as faculty/staff meetings. We will also persuade the club that is selling snacks and drinks on campus to not sell drinks that come in single-use plastic bottles. Meanwhile, aiming to increase the water dispensers/stations on campus to make it more convenient for people to use recycled water bottles, we will research about the best locations on campus to add more water dispensers and the best brands for them.

This project will engage students on a local environmental issue of their choice and together they will create a performance piece as an awareness campaign for the community.

Our action will showcase how other schools in our district and our community can utilize more efficient irrigation and utilize drought tolerant plants to create a practical and aesthetically pleasing garden. Our project will be a means to educate others in mindful irrigation that uses less water. Students will use the garden as a platform to teach other students, their parents, our staff and community about how our garden operates and sustains using less water than a traditional garden. Students as Junior Gardeners will help care for the garden, we will have community garden work days, and staff will take an active role in maintaining and improving upon the garden.
