Deer Park Go Green Eco-School

Deer Park Eco-School initiatives engage students in environmental learning and action at school.

Here are some of the things they are doing:

National Sweater Day

Students organized a sweater day so the building temperature could be turned down by 3 degrees to save energy.

New Compost Bins

New compost bins are being used in classrooms to ensure organic waste is composted.

Lights Out

Students applied "lights out" stickers to switch plates in every classroom to remind others to conserve energy.

Litterless Lunches

Deer Park students are encouraged to bring litter less lunches. Reusable containers reduce waste.

Bring Your Own Bowl

Bring your own bowl for Fun Friday Lunches. Using reusable bowls and plates helps to reduce waste.

School Garden

Growing food helps students appreciate where food comes from and the importance of soil and insects.

We are looking for a used canoe to create a garden like the one pictured above.
