Go Green Challenge

trophiesThe Go Green Challenge is a competition run each year in the Cambridge Public School District in partnership with the Department of Public Works (DPW). Every elementary classroom teacher receives a sheet to fill out with his or her students, indicating green actions they are taking together, such as recycling, having a plant in the classroom, or turning off lights when they’re not needed.

When this sheet is filled out, teachers hang it outside their classroom door. After the deadline, the number of sheets hanging in each school is tallied. The three schools with the highest percent participation win trophies made from recycled materials! Each class that participates receives pencils made from recycled newspaper.

Congratulations to the 2019 Winners!
First Place: Morse School
Second Place: Tobin School
Third Place: Peabody School

THANK YOU to all the classrooms throughout the district that have participated. THANK YOU for all you do to teach and involve students in protecting natural resources.
