Past meetings

  • October 2013: We introduced ourselves, talked about activities and travel during summer that involved environment, the Coastal Cleanup Day (which was on September 21) and discussed the green activities at Chadbourne.  We also watched a funny video called Green Ninja.
  • November 2013: Our librarian Mrs. Conover (and Mr. Conover) talked about the joys and adventures of driving environment friendly cars - electric as well as one running on vegetable oil.
  • December 2013: We talked about reducing waste during holiday including food, wrapping and electricity.
  • January 2014: Ms. Judy Nam, a Chadbourne parent who works with a local water district, talked about water conservation.  We learned how to detect water leak anywhere in the home (watch this video on YouTube). Because of the very low rain this year, this topic was very relevant and everyone enjoyed it!
  • February 2014: The theme was phantom power. A fifth grade student presented his findings on it, and we watched a funny video about it as well. We created a quiz for our parents which will be sent out soon!
  • March 2014: Watched a funny and interesting video, listened to a student talk about TerraCycle, and finalize our quiz for the parents.
  • April 2014: A student talked about what we can do with worn out shoes (see the video below). Our quiz rocked! Then, we talked about watersheds, and specifically the Fremont area. This included the sources, as well as pollution and its effects on a watershed.
  • May 2014: A student talked about the life cycle of a sheet of paper. After this, we worked with Mr. Seubert to plant milkweed plants behind the classroom. Finally, we hosted a school-wide cleanup. All parents and students from Chadbourne were invited. We want to look at where the trash is, and how we can prevent further litter from being on the ground.
  • June 2014 - Mr. Seubert showed us a movie about his father, who recreated an entire forest on Sign Hill in South San Francisco. It was followed by a discussion on it. We wrapped up our year by discussing ideas for the next school year and completed our school cleanup.
