We are applying for the Green Flag Award through the National Wildlife Foundation's Eco-School USA program. Here is a message from the Rieke Student Council Leadership Team:
We are the StudentCouncilthat wants to earn a Green Flag. What is a Green Flag you say? A Green Flag is a symbol that we are an eco-friendly school. We could be the first in Oregon!! So help us become a greener school by saving energy, recycling, and using the back of the paper when you draw. In order to life your spirits, we came up with a contest. Who can write the best Rieke Eco-Green Song? The winner gets a green Rieke t-shirt. SO WORK ON IT! Don’t forget the 5 Rs: Rieke, Reuse, Recycle, Reduce, and Replant (please include these in your song). The contest will take place over the summer. Bring in your lyrics in the first week of school next fall!
