Residents For a More Beautiful Port Washington (Residents) is excited to announce the addition of over 50 new students to their environmental Green Team. Residents work with local community organizations to provide environmental hands-on education for students grades 1 through 5.
Through the environmental passport program sponsored by the Jagger Foundation, students are invited to take the extra step to extend their environmental learning beyond the classroom.
Those who complete their environmental passports are then recognized as Green Team Leaders and participate in a variety of programs throughout the year in their schools and community such as planting gardens, community cleanups and brainstorming innovative new solutions to local environmental issues.
Most recently, these students worked with the Schreiber Tree Huggers to brainstorm and create permanent signs in all of the Port Washington elementary schools to encourage their classmates to make greener choices.
The following students will join the Green Team for the 2015-16 school year:
To become a green team leader, go to www.pwresidents/programs/environmental-passport, select a grade level for the 2014-15 school year and scroll down to complete the passport.
