St. Michael’s Students in Grade 3/4 participated in the 2015 Triple StaRs Grade 4 Waste Reduction Challenge in our science class.
The Grade 3/4’s were entered in a draw to receive grant money to be put toward a waste reduction or environmental initiative in their classroom or school. Only two schools in Alberta received money and St. Michael’s won the top prize of $500.
They joined forces with St. Michael’s Parent Council in April to install a new water fountain or “hydration station” so students can fill their own water bottles easily and completely, reducing the number of plastic disposable water bottles being thrown away.
