We will spend the winter months preparing for the annual The Great American Cleanup.

I will have Roots & Shoots members send in their Christmas lists to the Macy's event to increase the amount of money they send to Make A Wish Foundation, a nonprofit that organizes amazing experiences for children with life threatening medical conditions.

Our project will make our teachers and staff at school feel appreciated by sending them anonymous compliments and kind notes. What we will do is create heart shaped decorative slips of paper and during lunch for a couple days in our student center, have the student body write notes to the different staff members. Roots & Shoots members will organize, review, and deliver the notes to the beneficiary staff members.

We will go out every morning for a week and collect bottles from the people dropping their kids off for school. Then we will go to a recycling center and bring the bottles there to get a cash back.

1) Create welcome packages for students who are new to the school. 2) Pack and distribute snack bags for homeless children. 3) Collect and fill boxes with holiday gifts for an inner city elementary school. 4) Host a bowl painting activity for students. These bowls will be donated to the “Empty Bowl” fundraiser for St. Vincent De Paul charity. Empty Bowls is St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore’s signature event that raises funds, friends and awareness of their work to serve those who are hungry and homeless in our community. 5) Make bird feeders to put around outside the school. 6) Put “Love Notes” in library books and random lockers. 7) Make Posters of different Random Acts of Kindness to hang throughout the school. 8) And as many more acts of kindness as we can do. More activities will be determined throughout the school year.

For our project, we will hand-make and decorate over 30 thank you cards for our many media specialist at our school as a way of expressing gratitude for all that they do.

Our project is a school garden. We want to plant California native plants that are drought tolerant, as well as some edible plants and vegetables. We want to use our project to engage students in our science, career technology, and culinary arts programs, by providing a clean and safe place for outdoor classrooms and recreational space.

The MET has been involved with the International Coastal Cleanup for just over 4 years and will continue to do so in the future. We have created a sub-committee within the MET Environmental Committee to begin implementing future cleanups.
United States
There is a local, Brooklyn-based nursery/gardening store (Natty Garden). I have been there before and know that they have what we need in stock. We would take a field trip there, return to school, and have club members stock designated classrooms with the new greenery.
United States
The participating students will now be in charge of motivating their chosen grade...signage, Q & A, rewarding conversations, etc (Let's see what they come up with, yeah?) There will be posters, collection stations for other individuals, regular collection times for the vested and badged collectors and their classes/grades. The students and I are very motivated. and excited as these projects are so important, in our school, community and, particularly, in this area of Queens!
