St. David School Green Team Prepare for Upcoming Earth Day

Environmentally themed Buttons created by students at St. David Catholic Elementary School

March 26, 2013 - In preparation for Earth Day 2013, the grade 3 Dearness Conservation "Green Team" at St. David Catholic School spent the morning creating environmentally themed buttons with the help of Lesley Comyn Lippold of Lellyrella. Lesley Comyn Lippold is a local entrepreneur and environmental mentor to the St. David "Green Team".

For over a decade, Sudbury Catholic Schools has been aggressively working on numerous Energy Conservation projects and initiatives to maximize efficiencies, including the Dearness Conservation program. The aim of the DC program is to involve students and staff in efforts to reduce the ecological footprint of their schools. The St. David School "Green Team" is a large group of students that work as a leadership team throughout the year to promote DC green initiatives and help build a healtheir and greener St. David School community.

The students, under the leadership of Ms. Comyn Lippold and their classroom teacher, Terri Lynn Lepage, created buttons with messages about saving electricity by shutting the lights off, the importance of daily composting & recycling, and eating foods that come in their own natural packaging such as fruits and vegetables.

Some student favourite themed messages included “Lettuce be Green”, “May the Forest be with You” and “Don't drop the Ball”.

These buttons will be distributed to students at St. David School in grades JK to 8 who are "Caught Being Green” during the month of April in celebration of Earth Day and in promotion of the school's Dearness Conservation initiatives.
