And Kindergarteners are learning how to use tools with Johanna and Charles in the Green Studio.
They can choose to build a birdhouse of their design or something for their Teddy Bears.
|Students learn how to hammer and saw.|
|You can't change the channels on this flat screen TV yet. Not until the student builds the remote.|
|An open air castle.|

We are working on getting an Eco-Schools Green Flag. To do so, we are completing an audit of waste in the lunchroom and other BNS areas. Have we improved our stats? We will let you know.

For two years, we have struggled with a too small sink. Then a fifth grader solved the problem using pipes that we have had in the Studio for months! Ta-Da! Filling a bucket is a cinch now.

After learning about energy/food cycles in eco-systems, 4th graders choose from among a number of critters, plants and fungus. Can they create a healthy, well-balanced eco-system? Playing Mother and Father Nature is difficult.
|Taking notes on whether or not their critters, plants, and/or fungi are thriving.|
|Amy is getting soil ready for 4th grade mini ecosystems. You can have fun too.|

We usually don't post anonymous comments; but this comment rightly points out that our recycling program is something that the BNS-BCS Green Committee volunteers, BNS Student Eco-Government Club, our First Graders and the entire school community need to continue to improve. Under the leadership of Johanna, many new initiatives are being planned to educate, yes the grown-ups, as well as the students how to reduce consumption and if necessary, recycle properly. We hope that you give up your anonymity and actively join us in making BNS even greener.
