The Greens Club is open to all students interested in protecting the environment, learning more about environmental concerns and actively working to protect our environment.
Students have worked with Shreveport Green as part of their anti-litter campaigns. We have a “Magnet Goes Green” campaign, which is a multi-phase program funded by a generous International Paper grant. The primary focus of our Magnet Goes Green project is a more comprehensive school recycling program.
Clubs adopt bins by painting them and pledging to empty them into our recycling bin at least 1-2 times a week. We are currently recycling clean paper, cardboard, aluminum, and plastic. And, as a bonus, the bins are looking great.
Here’s a Greens video designed to help everyone know which bin to use.
Greens Club partnered with the AP Environmental Science and Video Journalism classes and took a tour of the Woolworth Road landfill in Shreveport. In the spring students will visit the Pratt Recycling Center. The VJ students will produce videos of each tour to educate the Magnet community about the journey of trash and the importance of recycling.
In addition to the Magnet Goes Green campaign, Greens Club students regularly help out at the Valencia Community Center and Urban Youth Farm. We will help make trail improvements on the Coates Bluff Nature Trail. We also take Sci-Port field trips, hike Walter B. Jacobs Nature Park, and make presentations at area elementary schools. Dues are $5 a year with meetings on the 3rd Rotation Activity Period in room A-1.
