Camelot Elementary recognized by King County Green Schools Program for conservation efforts

The school’s “Green Team” supports recycling efforts in the school, helps run the school garden and holds a Green Festival.

Camelot Elementary in Federal Way Public Schools was recognized by the King County Green Schools Program for its participation during the 2018-19 school year.

This school worked to reduce waste, increase recycling and conserve natural resources, engaging both students and staff in learning about and practicing resource conservation. Camelot Elementary’s “Green Team” supports recycling efforts in the school, helps run the school garden, and holds a Green Festival supporting local environmental efforts.

Members of the Green Team also study conservation strategies and share what they’ve learned with the school. Camelot Elementary was recognized as a King County Sustaining Green School for maintaining Level One (waste reduction and recycling), Two (energy conservation), and Three (water conservation and pollution prevention) practices, and completing an additional conservation action or educational strategy.

These efforts are in support of the district strategic plan Goal 2: Thriving, Confident, Responsible Individuals.

The King County Green Schools Program provides hands-on help and the tools, such as recycling containers and signs, to make improvements. The program helps teach students and staff to only recycle materials they know are allowed. To reduce contamination in recycling bins, important messages such as “no liquids or food in recycling bins” are emphasized. Students in turn bring these lessons home.
