In November 2011, OIHS started a Green Team. It is a dedicated group of about 20 students who are meeting with teacher Liza Richheimer every Thursday at lunch to discuss issues of waste, garbage and energy use at OIHS.
The group is planning some exciting projects that will hopefully reduce the amount of waste produced at OIHS. Some of the Green Team members volunteered at the Greenfest in San Francisco this past weekend and returned to school with waste-busting ideas.
OIHS also joined SLWRP, Service Learning Waste Reduction Program. So far it's a great resource and support for our budding Green Team!
