After achieving the silver status for being an eco-friendly school last year the Newman Treehuggers have been hard at work. The Treehuggers started the year planting a Butterfly Garden in front of the school and watering and fertilizing plants on the Newman campus. We've also gotten a petiton signed and mailed to the prime minister to encourage action at the UN Climate Change Conference. Reusable paper boxes are being prepared for classrooms courtesy of the art classes, and a new bike rack has been installed outside of student services. The Treehuggers would especially like to thank Ms. DiCroce and Mr. Raposo for their hard work, dedication and many hours of time spent on running the Treehuggers and giving the students a pleasant and organized atmosphere to in which to work.

This year, the Newman Treehuggers have been hard at work and have made significant gains in environmental stewardship throughout the school community. With much support from administration, staff and students, we have been able to obtain silver EcoSchool status. Some of our many initiatives this year that have allowed us to achieve our goal include: the planting of 35 trees on school grounds, battery and cell phone collections, a Metropass raffle and the purchase of a new bike rack to encourage active transportation (to be placed at the west entrance). We also had many different Earth Week activities including the Clean Air Achievers, movie nights, our prayer tree and eco terrorism (keeping the garbage in the caf from one day to the next without cleaning it). A special thanks to Ms. Root and Mr. Labriola for their support during Earth Week and the rest of the year. The Treehuggers would especially like to thank Ms. DiCroce, Ms. Ferrer and Mr. Raposo for their hard work, dedication and many hours of time spent on running the Treehuggers and giving the students a pleasant and organized atmosphere to work in. A special thank you goes to our principal, Mr. Coleman, for his genuine interest & generous support of our ideas.
