Recycle Bowl Ends Tomorrow!


The Recycle Bowl ends Tuesday, November 15, 2016!
Each School participating in the competition should provide total pounds of recyclable material collected during the collection period and its current total number of students and teachers. The Recycle Bowl determines national and state winners by dividing the pounds of recycling collected by the school’s number of students and teachers, so make sure to weigh your recycling!

In order to earn two points for the Recycle Bowl, you must submit the “Weight Data Tracker” via Credly using the code: GGCRecycleBowl.

Good luck and keep up the good work!

Climate Summit Raising Awareness on Climate Change


The Climate Summit, a conference held by Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice (DWEJ), was a huge success!
Students from Martin Luther King Senior High, Cass Technical High School, Renaissance High School and Frederick Douglass Academy got the opportunity to hear from Andrew Humphrey, the meteorologist from Channel 4 News, as well as other environmental professionals. The students were able to discuss climate change and the environmental issues that affect it, as well as steps they can take to make a difference.
Thank you to DWEJ for hosting the event, and thank you to the students and teachers for spending the day with us!
Thank you for all that you do!
