The Green Team
Welcome to The Green Team!
Asbell Elementary Green Activities
Green Team Leaders: Annie Langston and Mary Robbins
Asbell Roadrunners have always been green and our newly constructed entryway
proves it! The bright green walls are an indicator of the new “green
technology” that is being incorporated into all new Fayetteville Public
Schools’ construction. The lights are motion activated, so resources
are not being wasted when the building is not in use.
Asbell participates in the Farm-to-School Program. This program connects our school with local farms with the objectives of serving healthy meals in school cafeteria, improving student nutrition, providing health and nutrition education opportunities that will last a lifetime, and supporting local small farmers. The goal is to develop a healthy, community-based, community-supported school food system. The cafeteria also recycles aluminum cans for charity.
Each classroom at Asbell has a paper recycling bin that is emptied weekly by Asbell’s Green Team into an igloo located outside. Each month two classrooms are recognized for their outstanding efforts with the “Green Globe Award.”
Asbell’s Green Team club is currently setting up a recycling station for printer cartridges, cell phones, and old electronics. We also collect and recycle box tops, Campbell’s labels, and Tyson labels. These are collected and redeemed for supplies and/or money. The companies then recycle the labels that we send in.
The Green Team has placed posters throughout the school to encourage everyone to reduce, reuse and recycle. We have had guest speakers from the Sierra Club at our Road Runner Rallies, and we look forward to working with them more in the future
