News from Dr. Cruz: Going Green

Team AISD,

This month, it's easy being green. Whether you want to celebrate Earth Month with a one-time event or a long-term project, Austin ISD Sustainability has you covered.

Show your support by signing an Earth Day pledge, taking on a recycling challenge, indulging your love of reading with an environmentally themed book or attending a sustainability event.

Schools throughout AISD are getting creative with their Earth Month ideas. Maplewood Elementary School is adding an Earth Pledge to their daily routine. Kealing and Lamar middle school journalism students are participating in an eco-focused student storytelling project. And Akins High School is integrating an Earth Day theme into its 5K and carnival this Saturday.

Whatever you're doing to go green, be sure to tag @AustinISDGreen and use hashtags #AISDgreen and #AISDoutside. Happy Earth Month!

Paul Cruz, Ph.D.
