Green Team

  • Green Team


    The mission of the Arcado Green Team is promoting environmental knowledge and awareness. This is accomplished mainly through recycling. Environmental education is encouraged through a “hands-on” approach. Team members take the responsibility of collecting and recyclable items throughout the school. Global thinking, problem-solving, cooperative learning, and service education are among the many benefits of team membership.
