Sierra Unick is the President of the Canora Composite School’s Green Team. The Green Team is a committee that shines a new light on ways to help our environment by being more ecologically healthy. They are a grade 5-7 student-led group that allows their leadership abilities to shine in everything that the Green Team Does.
The Green Team has an executive made up of Sierra Unick (President), Spencer Steele (Vice President) Kaitlyn Landstad (Treasurer), Jill Gulka (Secretary), and Zachary Grodecki (Campaign Manager). They have formal meetings during noon hour to keep the executive up-to-date. Each of the executive is a leader of a sub-committee. There are three sub-committees: Green Games (chaired by Sierra), CCS (chaired by Spencer and Zachary), and So You Think You Can Go Green (chaired by Kaitlyn and Jill). There is also an Earth Day Promotional Committee in the works.
Green Games hosted the Grade One’s at the Composite school in November, and Grade Two’s recently in mid-January. They were here for approximately an hour, with four groups, four stations, and 15 minutes at each station. The stations that were set up were: Riley’s Recycling (teaching students how and the importance of recycling from separating a pile of recycling into four bins- plastic, glass, paper, and cardboard). Secondly, there was a craft (with recycled milk cartons, they took items from nature, and hot glued decorations onto our new bird feeders). Thirdly, they showed the students videos on the things that they can do to save our environment, and lastly, they showed them a way to reuse items and had them bring an empty water bottle to get filled up with warm chocolate.
So You Think You Can Go Green? Is a committee that is planning an event to show the public that there are easy and effective ways to go green. Please pay special attention to the posters all over town that feature the details of this event.
CCS has had Green Limeade Sales during morning break to fundraise to help the Green Team. The beverages are always enjoyed by all students.
