Green Team

Sponsor: TBD

Mission Statement:

Tallwood elementary school's Green team is an environmental club that focuses on sponsoring hands-on resources that promote student exploration of various sustainability concepts. We work to promote responsible citizenship, which includes reducing our carbon footprint and promoting sustainability at our school. The school division takes great efforts to minimize the impact on our environment. In accordance with these efforts, the Tallwood Elementary Green Team pledges to recycle, prevent pollution and slow climate change! We will encourage students, staff, family, and friends to follow the 3 R's - Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle; walk, bike, carpool or take public transportation; and conserve energy and water to help protect the environment for a better planet Earth!

At Tallwood elementary, we recycle batteries and cell phones, so if you have these items that you no longer need, please drop them off at our school's recycling receptacles. In addition, we participate in the Lynnhaven River Now restoration project through oyster gardening. Consider joining THE GREEN TEAM's efforts, and help the environment!
