Environmental Club raises awareness

Skyline High School’s Environmental Club is about to make a huge impact — its members have decided to help transform their school into an eco-friendly learning environment for students and staff alike.
The King Country Green School Organization provides three levels a school must reach in order to be considered “green”: Level One is waste reduction, Level Two is energy conservation and Level Three is water conservation.
Skyline is not even a Level One school. Other schools in the district, such as Liberty High School and Pine Lake Middle School, are well on their way to reaching Level Two.
This doesn’t mean Skyline students don’t care about the environment. It’s just no club has taken the initiative to emphasize the importance of waste reduction and energy conservation. That’s precisely what Skyline’s Environmental Club is trying to change.
In their campaign to helping the school reach Level One, members are creating inspirational posters to remind their fellow peers to recycle, and planning a series of short educational videos to be broadcasted on Skyline’s weekly news show, SPTV.
The club hopes to get the school to Level Two by the end of the school year.
