Green Newton’s Schools Connections Group will meet on  Thursday, December 12 from 3:45-5pm in the third-floor arc area of the Newton Free Library (330 Homer St., Newton).

The group provides a forum for parents, students and educators to promote sustainability in Newton’s schools. All are welcome to participate as we share experiences and ideas. If your school does not yet have a Green Team,

we can help to establish one. Representatives of the group participate in discussions to improve food quality and sustainability in school cafeterias. We are also advocating for more in-depth climate science to be taught in our schools, as well as setting up textile recycling collection containers outside of each school building.
