ECO Team Achieves Silver

Eco Team Achieves the Silver!

We have just received word that Lorna Jackson Public School has achieved the SILVER status with Eco Schools.

The email read “Congratulations on certifying as a SILVER EcoSchool for the 2014-2015 School year!  You should be very proud of your accomplishments and the work that you are doing to develop environmental responsibility in your schools.” We raised over $500 for the Toronto Wildlife Centre, decrease the amount of electricity we use, and helped to reuse paper when we could. With all of our accomplishments this year, we would like to personally thank each and every member for their dedication to help Lorna Jackson make a positive impact in the environmental world.   We would also like to thank all of the staff and community members who use environmental practices with us on a daily basis. Please consider adopting more environmentally friendly practices at home as well, especially over the summer to form them into habits. Great work Eco Team and we are looking forward to what we can accomplish next year!

Eco Team has one more Challenge for the Lorna Jackson Community

Dr. Jane Goodall is the woman who worked closely with the Chimpanzees in East Africa. Her successful work has helped to promote not only the well-being of chimps, but for healthy ecosystems and sustainable living.

Dr. Goodall has a grassroots program called “Roots and Shoots”, which highlights environmental efforts around the world at local levels. Ms. Miller and Ms. Trivedi have become members of the program (it is free to join), and have posted our efforts with our fundraisers for the Toronto Wildlife Centre. If you go to rootsandshoots.org, and scroll down to the “Search Projects”, our project is called “Wild for Wildlife”. If you have Facebook or Twitter, you can share this project with others to get stars or likes. Each month the stars and likes are tracked and one group is chosen for “Project of the Month”. If you can share this for our Eco team and Animal Club, it would be most appreciated.
