    Our Purpose

    Green Team is, in essence, the student council on sustainability for our school. As a team, students focus on various activities that help to increase our schools awareness of healthy food, food gardening and recycling/composting

    The Green Team is a committee of students in the 4/5th grade who meet every Thursday at lunch. We work in the garden, do composting in the lunchroom, serve “Free Salad Thursday and work together to do other projects.

    We had our largest team last year--30 students--and kept pretty busy! We even started a BLOG to share with our Montlake friends and families. We are grateful to Ms. Bloom and Mr. Van Deusen for all their time in helping our team try out new ideas and offer their time during our lunch meetings.
