Join the Rieke Green Team!

Please join us for the first meeting of the school year for Rieke’s Green Team on Friday, September 16th after school (3-4pm) in room 11. Students and parents welcome!

If you or your child are interested, please contact jenn.poulsen@gmail.com or attend the meeting. Subsequent meetings are scheduled for the 1st and 3rd Friday of the month. Let's plan some new activities for our Green Flag school!

The Green Team works to get Rieke "reducing, recycling, and reusing" as much as possible. That means we will be looking for ways to reduce our food waste, reduce our garbage volume, and increase our composted food in the cafeteria. 

The Green Team is all about helping the students figure out ways to lead the Rieke community in being "greener" and sustaining the programs on their own. It means developing leadership and opportunities for community service. In the classroom, it might mean finding ways to reduce water usage, paper towels, or electricity. It might also mean figuring out how to sustain the recycling of chip bags or power bar wrappers and all the promotional posters that would go with the program.
