Way To Go
CHALLENGE VS. MONTPELIER
Way to Go! Week is here and it's time to gear up to crush some carbon! Way To Go week is a chance for you and our school to go toe to toe against carbon pollution and win. Bike, walk, carpool or ride the bus to victory! Win prizes, have fun-and help us reach our goal of reducing 500,000 lbs of carbon pollution.
The Way to Go School Challenge dares you to be the greenest and cleanest school in Vermont. By encouraging students and families to choose a clean commute option we can have a real impact on reducing harmful vehicles emissions that are emitted into our environment.
U-32 vs. MHS....the faculty staff portion is on-line...register at waytogovt.org. The student portion, the challenge against Montpelier High school is going to be based on ONE day. As coordinator of the student portion of this, I have chosen Friday as our "Carbon Crunching Day." Please spread the word!! Ask your students to commute in a carbon cleaner way on Friday: take the bus (or continue to do so), carpool with a friend or ride your bike. You can also make other choices that day (and every day), to not make a trip that is not essential. We will log the # of students who are doing this throughout the day on Friday. I will ask First Student to tally the # of bus riders, both to and from school. I will devise a way to tally our carpoolers before and after school. If you are interested in helping with this Friday data collection, please let me know.
