|The Green Team|
At John Stanford International School, environmental stewardship is an important aspect of our mission to raise responsible and caring global citizens. We teach our students to respect and appreciate the environment and that we must do our part to use the earth's resources responsibly. As a result, our students, staff and families are taking significant steps to learn more about how we can better care for our environment and planet. We always encourage walking or biking to school. We encourage reuse and recycling of electronics and other household items such as holiday cards and calendars. We also support a lunch room composting and recycling program which reduced the school's total garbage expense by over 50%. Garbage dumpster pickup went from once a week to every other week. Cafeteria garbage was reduced by >95% by weight! We have also formed a student environmental stewardship leadership team aptly namedThe Green Team.
The JSIS Green Team's mission is to integrate environmental sustainability into all activities at JSIS by practicing waste reduction, resource conservation, and other "green" activities. We help and encourage JSIS students, teachers, and staff to become environmental stewards at school, at home, and in the larger community.
The Green Team is led by Ms. Nani, 5th Grade English teacher. Other Green Team members are Señorita Priscilla, SeñoritaMaria, Barb Burrill and the 4th and 5th grade students.
