Go Green Challenge

go green at home graphicThis year, instead of the Go Green Challenge, we have the Go Green at Home Challenge!

Each week in April we'll share a new bingo-style board of themed actions that students can do for the environment. Each document includes links to resources, a "calculate the impact" section, and additional things for older students to check out.

Students are challenged to see how many actions they can do! Students/families are encouraged to share on social media an action or two that they've taken using the hashtag #GoGreenCambridge. (More info about this in the documents.)

Go Green Challenge

The Go Green Challenge is an annual competition run each year in partnership with the Department of Public Works (DPW). Every elementary classroom teacher receives a worksheet 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. The three schools with the highest percent participation win trophies made from recycled materials!, and 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 in the Go Green Challenge.
Thank you for all you do to teach and involve students in protecting natural resources.
