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.
