I love that students are doing more of the reporting for the Green Team. Check out these latests reports about adopting an endangered species, the lights off initiative, and the cell phone recycle event!
Reminder: the Green Team is looking for 1 or 2 additional adults to help facilitate environmentally conscious projects and events.
The theme for this year's Green Team is to Maintain and Grow. We were so excited to be awarded the Michigan Green School certificate with an Emerald distinction last year! This year, we plan to maintain the many projects put into motion and grow some new ones as well. Click here to see the most recent update the Green Team made to the PTO.
If you or your child would like to be involved with these fun and meaningful projects, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mrs. Morad (email@example.com).

South Arbor's middle school, intermediate, and a handful of primary students welcomed some extraordinary guests last week.

We learned unbelievable facts and, at times, got a taste of our own fear. Click here for pictures and amazing details!
