This section of Clear into the Classroom features success stories about elementary schools that get involved in different types of environmental stewardship projects. We hope that they will serve as inspiration for you, your colleagues, and your students.
School Serves as Model for Going Green
Berry Elementary School in Houston, Texas, is a unique K-5 environmental magnet school where all students get involved in a green project.
Students Help Build New Habitat
At J.C. Parks Elementary School in Indian Head, Maryland, students rolled up their sleeves to help develop an 11,000 square foot habitat next to a freshwater marsh. In the process, their efforts are helping filter runoff from the school grounds.
Spotlight on Energy Conservation
The Walnut Elementary Green Team has been working for four years to involve students and the community in energy conservation, schoolyard greening, reducing waste, and recycling—and the kids have made lots of videos to share their experiences.
Educator Develops Community-wide Conservation Project
Kristin Joivell, who teaches kindergarten in Alexandria, Pennsylvania, organized four community outreach surveying events to get community members and elementary students involved in examining, identifying, and cataloging wildlife and plants.
DuPont sites around the world also get involved in a wide range of conservation and sustainability initiatives. Check out our Clear into the Future® News!
