Improving the environmental footprint of a school with close to 1,500 students, while juggling a boatload of responsibilities is a formidable task to go at alone. Luckily, the Green Team keeps its door open to all students who are willing to participate.
Atholton’s Green Team, formerly known as the STEAM Team, started a new program for composting at school to promote an eco-friendly focus in Atholton’s student body and faculty. On January 21, the first day of midterms, the program began with a compost bin in the cafeteria. The Green Team members came to help promote and monitor the bin.
