Fair Oaks has recently added a fifth grade Green Team due to a grant from Hennepin County. Student leaders on the Green Team have helped with teaching Fair Oaks students proper ways to recycle milk cartons by modeling on the morning news and assisting in the lunch room. The Green Team is also responsible for collecting recycling from each room in the building. Along with these programs, Fair Oaks is also beginning an organics recycling program which turns organic waste into compost. This year we have begun with paper towels in the student bathrooms. Next year, we will expand our organics recycling to the cafeteria!
