Winter Break Tips
12/20/18 Tahoma High
Hi Bears! Reducing your energy use and waste does not end when school is out. Some ways that you can make a difference: turn off lights when you leave a room, shut off water when you are brushing your teeth or scrubbing your hands, clean recyclables before you put them in the recycle bin, and compost whenever possible. For more tips and tricks, take the pledge. We are at 121, almost half-way to our goal!
Recycle your items with Green Team

The Green Team is looking for used Oui glass yogurt containers, used k-cup containers, teacups/saucers, and lids to water bottles/ice drinks. Please drop off items to Room 304 or the office and tell them it’s for the Green Team. Thanks!

Over 100 THS students have taken a pledge to reduce their impact on the planet by composting and recycling, reducing waste, reducing energy usage, and using reusable products! Way to go Bears! Let’s rally some more.

Don’t forget to turn in those Green Paws! Remember when you show a CRES Green Team member you can "Make Good Choices" and Compost and Recycle correctly - you can earn a Green Paw. Turn those in to the office - just like Otter Paws - and you can win "Otter-ific" prizes!

Kate Waind, our King County Green Schools representative, visited CRES to share her sustainable know-how and some fun games with staff and students last Wednesday.
