West School Goes Green

West’s Green Lunchroom

What are Green Guides? Green Guides are the name for our students that help with recycling and composting. Each week three 3rd grade and three 4th grade students are chosen to man our three recycling stations. All students learn to separate trash, compost and recyclable items on their lunch trays and deposit them in the correct containers.  Our student Green Guides help with this effort as students go through the station. Students bringing lunch from home are encouraged to pack lunches in reusable containers and lunch bags. The Green Guides also help bring the compost outside and put it in our collection of Green Cone Compositors. We hope students will develop lifelong green habits and practice them at home.
