Green Team

WE’RE GOING GREEN

With a common vision to promote the “Green Movement” in the Cedar Rapids School District, Green Teams were formed throughout the District at the beginning of the 2013/2014 school year. Teams consist of students, staff and community volunteers committed to making positive environmental changes in their schools, communities and daily lives. The teams will continuously review operations and explore new ways to improve the District’s daily routine and reduce utility consumption.

Together we will forge a path to reduce our carbon footprint and preserve our precious resources for years to come.

COME JOIN OUR TEAM!


Mission Statement:

To educate and implement sustainable practices that will protect our environment and reduce our carbon footprint.
