2020 Theme: The Sustainability, Wellness, and Garden (SWAG) committee is excited to share that APS has committed to removing styrofoam trays from our cafeteria! We were fortunate enough to pilot composting during Earth Week 2019, and we hope to continue our partnership with Compost Now. Students will also experience a special enrichment activities in the classroom and practice energy conservation with a Jr. SWAG-led blackout hour. Finally, we'll be helping our community to recycle hard-to-recycle items. Details to be shared soon!
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.JOINING Jr SWAG:
