The Junior SWAG Team is made up of a small group of 3rd and 4th grade budding leaders who care about contributing to their school, the environment and health/wellness. These students have the privilege of coming together to help promote school-wide sustainability, wellness, kindness, and garden initiatives at MES to help MES and the earth be an even better place. Children apply to be a part of the team at the end of the previous school year. The MES School Counselor selects the team. Junior SWAG meets throughout the year, twice a month during their lunch period, to learn together, brainstorm and plan various initiatives.
In the past, the Jr. SWAG team shared weekly mindfulness tips over morning announcements, led the MES No Place For Hate assembly, initiated the MES Culture of Kindness, installed Buddy Benches, facilitated a Zero-Waste Lunch Challenge, facilitated Heart Health and Mindfulness Weeks, made a MES Recycling Video, participated in a shoe recycling drive, and orchestrated a school-wide Blackout Hour during Earth Week.
Below are examples of videos that the Junior SWAG team has produced for the MES student population.
