To stop vandalism and destruction, and encourage school beautification, the class will create 1-minute skit presentations showing various instances of the actions taking place, and record them using a video camera. These videos will then be put onto CDs and distributed to other classrooms so other students can be made aware and encouraged to stop their negative behavior. They also plan to start "junior janitors" to have students make sure their peers are not littering or wasting food at lunchtime. To promote kind behavior and "the golden rule," they will make posters around the school with positive messages.

We have placed 8 feeders of different colors in our courtyards. We made the feeders so that they are all identical except for the color. We have red, orange, yellow, blue, purple, pink, white and black feeders. We have designed a plan to randomize where we place the feeders and change their position every two weeks. This is to be sure that it is actually the color of the feeder that is attracting the birds not the location. All feeders are filled with the same food. We have bird cameras focused on the feeders to make sure that we are getting all of the birds that visit our feeders. We only count the bird if we can tell it ate out of the specific colored feeder.

The project will improve the care for the plants within the school, perhaps increase the number of native plants and attract animals. Each class will adopt a particular area of campus to focus on in their care. The students will research the types of plants there are and what kind of care they need. The students will then care for the plants.

The project will not only beautify our school landscape but it will teach our students all the steps involved in designing, preparing, and planting native plants. The project will bring our community, parents, and students together in creating a drought tolerant garden.

We will create a school flower and vegetable garden and harvest and share the produce. We will ask for donations from local stores to help with the costs. Students and staff at the school will maintain the garden.

Our Roots & Shoots groups coordinates an annual moth night each year. In 2013, we gathered in our backyard. In 2014, we collaborated with the National Park Service and gathered on the beach within the park boundaries. We will continue to take part each year and in doing so increase awareness and appreciation for these nocturnal pollinators.

Our project will be to put art on the storm drains, put screens cover them, have trash cans around them, have poop bags provide for the community to prevent contamination of the water, and have trash compacters installed where trash cans commonly get over filled. We will do all this by first taking pictures of the main visible storm drains around our school. We will make a map and pick the ones that get the most foot action. We will contact the city about getting permission to do art on the storm drains. We will start small to get some awareness on what we are doing. Once we hit our first storm drains we will then expand our efforts toward the other issues by reaching out to our local city council member, church, Play Ground of Dream (POD) and Youth Policy Institute (YPI) for more support.
