To Conserve Electricity, Encourage Others to Leave A Smaller Ecological Footprint on the the World

and

Think Green

slide6

THE GOAL:

To Reduce our School’s energy consumption by 5% from February 1st, 2012 to March 9th, 2012

McLeod Elementary School and Pouce Coupe Elementary School have challenged each other to see which school can save the most energy

Points are awarded each day for energy saved and are tallied at the end of each week.

The School that earns the most points by March 9th, 2012 will WIN the energy contest and a tasty treat!

slide7

The Points System:

Classroom Lighting

3 Points – Every 30 minutes ALL lights are off

2 Points – Every 30 minutes 2/3 of lights are off

1 Point - Every 30 minutes 1/3 lights are off

Appliances (School Wide)

Students measured the Watts all appliances use. Then they planned which appliances to unplug or put into sleep mode to save the most energy. Turning down the furnace and other school wide electricity consumption activities are also awarded this way.

For every 500 Watts saved 3 points are rewarded.

THE MOLE

  • Awards extra points for lights out in common areas (gym, hallway, bathrooms, staff room, etc…), signage and posters, extra energy initiatives and computers in sleep mode
  • Secretly checks in on each school 3-4 times during the challenge

  • Creating posters in school to promote the contest and remind our school to save energy
  • Putting computers in sleep mode when they are not being used
  • Turning off/unplugging printers that are not used often
  • Putting the photocopier in energy saving mode when its not being used
  • Created an energy song “We Will Save Energy!” (to tune of” We Will Rock You!”)

WHY are we so concerned about conserving electricity?

  • We want to preserve the Earth for future generations of kids
  • We want to help our schools save money
  • We want to encourage other schools in the school district to save energy and save money
  • We don’t want to run out of natural resources – once they’re used up, they’re all gone
  • We want to reduce the impact of climate change
  • We want to reduce pollution
  • We want to help animals keep their habitats
  • We want to win a treat as the winners of the contest
