Volunteers for 2018/2019 are welcome.

Purpose: 

Provide a venue for kids to discuss and learn how they can affect their environment.


4th & 5th Grades: Gardening held once a week during 4th/5th Grade lunch recess (12:30 – 1)

Fourth and fifth grade students are able to garden in the three planters that face the grass area.  If you've always entertained the idea of a garden but haven't had the time, please come help our students maintain their garden.  As the plants grow, we have been able to hold tastings of yummy kale and quinoa soup, sauteed Swiss chard and lentil, tomato and Swiss chard soup.  The kids have really enjoyed tasting new foods with elements from their garden.

Gardening is done during the 4th and 5th grade lunch recess which is from 12:30 - 1:00.  


2nd & 3rd Grades: Upcycle Art program held once a month during the 2nd/3rd Grade lunch recess (12 - 12:30)

This program gives 2nd and 3rd graders the opportunity to participate in a monthly art project where they can use their creativity to take recycled goods and reuse them to construct an individual or collaborative art piece. Volunteers are needed to help with these art projects.

Example projects for 2015-2016 school year were:

  • September-November – Group Collaboration Project
  • December – Winter Wonderland Trees
  • January – Black & White Snow Scape
  • February – Valentine’s Cards
  • March – Puzzle Piece Color Explosion

  • May – Mother’s Day Vases

4th & 5th Grades: Lunch Meeting held once a month during 4th/5th Grade lunch (12:15 - 12:45)

Once a month 4th and 5th grade students are asked to bring a lunch from home to picnic in the library patio while we discuss various environmental topics as well as taste various healthy snack options.   

 

Sample topics discussed in the 2015-2016 school year were:

  • Water conservation, succulents and water resilient plants
  • Skip the straw challenge
  • Mystery Sampling of in season fruit and produce
  • Air pollution and alternative transportation
  • Reduce, reuse, recycle

  • Endangered species talk by students

Read and Reuse Sale - June

With the holidays behind us, and spring cleaning soon upon us, please consider donating any gently used books, games and Seacliff Spirit wear to our Read and Reuse sale.  Donations can be dropped off at the front office.  This is a great way for the kids to end the school year with a little shopping spree for things to read and do over the summer. If you are able to volunteer an hour or two in early June, please send a note to seacliffvolunteers@gmail.com.


Harvest Festival (October 19th, 2017)

The Green Team is responsible for the Water Booth (aka Witches' Brew).  Seacliff students are asked to create posters to advertise the booth as well as decorate the booth on the day of the Harvest Festival
