Carmel Middle School’s Green Club Toy Drive

For America Recycles Week, students in the Carmel Middle School Green Club chose to have a gently-used toy drive to promote “reusing” and reducing waste by giving new life to toys they were no longer using.  Over the course of a week, students and staff brought in about 1,000 toys/ books/ puzzles/ games. They gave the toys to the Julian Center, an Indianapolis shelter for families in crisis.  Each day of the week, students also read announcements giving facts about reducing trash, recycling, and reusing or repurposing items to keep them out of landfills.

Green Clubs

Getting students engaged in green practices is the key to a healthy future for our community. Green Clubs in our schools are a terrific forum for students to learn how to care for the earth and to put that knowledge into practice. See below for what student green clubs in our district are doing so far this school year!
