Peirce Green Team to start on Friday, January 18, 2019!

The Peirce Green team, headed this year by Peirce parents James Baldwin, Katie Tremblay and Noliko Utsuzawa, will be kicking off with a first meeting on Friday, January 18th from 2:40-3:25 pm.

The plan will be to meet bi-monthly the rest of the school year, with the exception of a 3-part stormwater program led by Marian Miller, the Education Program Manager at the Mystic River Watershed Association. (This program will meet on three consecutive Fridays, possibly beginning the last week of January. We will keep you posted.)

We look forward to welcoming 3rd, 4th and 5th graders to this after school program, and have exciting things planned for the year! Further details to follow in the newsletter the week of 1/14. Please email James, Katie and Noliko if your child is interested in attending:  jamesgeorgebaldwin@yahoo.com, tremblay.katie@gmail.com, norikobamboo@gmail.com.

New Parent Leadership Needed!! Let’s keep the Peirce Green Team Going!

  • New Parent leaders are needed to keep the Peirce Green Team going and engage students who want to make a difference for our planet.

  • In the past, Peirce Green Team students have educated their peers about classroom recycling and lunchroom composting and helped Peirce win the district-wide textile recycling competition two years in a row!

  • Commitment level can be as little as once or twice a month for a before- or after-school meeting time.

  • Arlington’s School Sustainability Coordinator,  Rachel Oliveri, will meet with interested parents to help plan activities and share town-wide ideas and resources. All the Arlington elementary schools have Green Teams! Let’s keep Peirce’s going strong!

  • Please contact Rachel Oliveri if you are interested: roliveri@arlington.k12.ma.us

  • With new leadership there will be new energy and enthusiasm to support our students!
