Green Team Start of 2020/21!
By: Karis B.
Green Team and Green Foundation are Back for 2020/21! Last year we accomplished so much, including removing 12lbs of plastic out of the ocean, donating $650.00 to the Delta District Food Hamper program, got a mascot named Jar Jar Binks, (who sadly died over the summer), we did a contest to design our new t-shirts, helped make our school a better place by sorting the garbage and recycling bins, lights out lunch and so much more.
This year, even though there are restrictions, we will try our best to make this world a better place. Green Team and Green Foundation have expanded, we not only have a new group of grade 4’s we have extended Green Foundation for grade 6 and 7’s!
We cannot wait for this year to get going, but so far we have made a presentation to teach people about recycling, weeded the gardens, we even found potatoes that were a big surprise!
We signed our pledge poster, and are planning to start up lights out lunch in the new year, and thanks to the Foundations, we are planning to sell more bracelets in the new year too.

Green Team Blog
We are a team of Grade 4 – 6 students from Neilson Grove Elementary who are trying to make a green difference in our community. Every Monday and Friday The green team meets to make morning announcements about sorting bottles, cans and more. The Green Team has grown this year. We now have two groups working together. The “Green Foundations” are grade 6 leaders who guide the grade 4 and 5 “Green Team” members.
To raise awareness about saving the environment and teaching our community about going green.
This year our goal is to save the sea we are doing that by raising money to go to 4oceans. We are going to raise money by doing bake sales and donating bottles to the bottle depot to recycle properly and to raise money. We love to help animals and nature and so much more. Sometimes grade 4’s come in because they want to help and because it is a fun way to be helpful.
