OES Green Team’s Mission: In order to raise awareness about and ensure OES’ long-term commitment to sustainability, the Green Team strives to institute environmentally friendly measures in and around OES by involving the student population and the surrounding community.

  • Introduced refillable white board markers
  • Raised awareness about local food opportunities

Current Projects:

  • Running a compost program
  • Have submitted an application for solar panels through an organization called Solar 4R Schools

We are looking for more ideas and would love input!
