Check out what students and staff at Rolland-Warner are doing to raise awareness about energy conservation in school. David Sweeney, a teacher at R-W, sent this message out to the staff this week:
On Friday, March 30th, 2012 our school will be participating in a massive campaign called National School Lights Out Day. In order to do this, we ask you to turn the lights off in your classrooms.
The goal of this campaign is to raise awareness about school-wide energy consumption to show the amount of energy and money that can be saved through such an easy task of turning off the lights. But most of all, we want to help our planet. We hope to change daily habits and thoughts.
We know that there might be minor inconvenience for you to have a lesson plan that doesn’t include lights, but there are still ways to make a class out of it.
We all love convenience. But convenience is slowly destroying the world. Simple sacrifices need to be made. We realize it’s a sacrifice you might not want to make, but the effort truly means something.
Please let us know if you are not willing to participate, but every light means something.
If you have any questions/comments, please email Mr. Sweeney or contact Allison Johnson (Team 8A), Taylor Olko (8B), Kaylee Fenslau (8B), or Emily Boren (8B).
Thank you so much, and we hope to see you participate in National School Lights Off Day on March 30th!
Mr. Sweeney and company are doing a great job highlighting the benefits of energy conservation in our District. Great job!
