Midyear Celebration Wednesday, January 25th from 5-7PM!

We look forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday, January 25th, at the Midyear Celebration!
A bus will be at your school between 4:00 and 4:15 for those who requested transportation!

The Celebration will be from  5-7PM at Renaissance High School and will include fun green activities for your students, food and a short awards ceremony!

Important Clarification About Sustainability Patrols!

The Sustainability Patrols are worth three points total in the Energy Phase of the Challenge, which breaks down to one point earned for every four patrol sheets.
A school may submit four patrol sheets at a time. It is not required that all 12 patrol sheets are submitted at once in order to earn the points.

Reduce the Juice Reminders!

To earn one point (or to have your Challenge considered within your school’s total energy savings), you must submit the following:

  • a correctly completed Reduce the Juice Calculation Worksheet
  • a completed event debrief (either the attached Discussion Questions or a paragraph outlining student reflections from the event)
  • Two (2) pictures from the event (either reading your meter, or the Reduce the Juice Challenge itself)

The Reduce the Juice activity can earn your Green Team up to four points, so you must submit the proper evidence listed above each time in order to get all four points!

Remember: to be eligible to win an energy saving award, you must complete at least two (2) Reduce the Juice Challenges at your school. The awards will be distributed based on which schools saved the most energy per square foot cumulatively for all their Challenges.


Weekly Words of Wisdom!

“I would like to ask my students, ‘what do you think are your rights to the environment?’ and then have a document that they create starting with ‘We the students…’ We should give students the opportunity to really talk with other students. When they get passionate, they really pass it on.”

Keep an eye out each week for more “words of wisdom” from our DPSCD Go Green Challenge School Coordinators!


Thank you for all that you do!
