Themes 2005 – 2010

The Sustainability Task Force and The Green Team focus on one issue each year.  There are so many ways we can reach out to both our community and the world at large.  To help the children make the most of our interconnected and branching ideas, we have selected themes that can be used on all levels – each division, each part of the building, each community of adults.  If you have any theme suggestions, please make comments below, or forward them to the STF group.  Over the years, our themes have included;

2005 – 2006 – Launching a Team: Earth Day at GCS
