Green Team

Protect the Earth.    Make Friends.     Be a Leader.    Have Fun!
What are Green Teams? Durango School District 9-R supports Green Teams at each of its schools. A Green Team is an after-school club geared toward helping the environment. We will concentrate on getting educated, spreading the word, and then taking action. Green Teams are active and interactive. With an adult advisor’s supervision, students will do their own research and develop group projects around reducing waste, recycling, conserving energy, and creating green spaces. Projects will be practical and focus on improvements that can be made at the school. We will also work on a District-wide Earth Day project combining our efforts across schools.
What are the team’s meeting details? In the 2022-23 School Year, the Park Elementary Green Team will meet on every other Thursday from 3 to 4 p.m. in the Park Elementary Library. Remaining meeting dates in 2023 are: March 30, April 13, April 22 (optional Earth Day parade and event at Buckley Park), April 27, May 11 and May 25. 

What do club members do? This is a student-led group, which means all Green Team members are expected to actively participate, engage in research and discussion, and be respectful of each other’s perspectives and ideas.
