Chinook Elementary School
Chinook successfully implemented a comprehensive waste recycling and composting program focusing on waste reduction in the lunch program. During this time, students are engaged and educated about the different important facts on recycling, waste identification and composting practices. Chinook’s Green efforts broadened to reach additional school staff who made important in-roads in recycling and waste reduction. The Child Nutrition Team worked diligently to identify other areas where waste/recycling impacts could be made, such as reducing food packaging waste in the lunches that are served daily. The Custodial Team is also deeply engaged in the program and proactively recognizes outstanding student participation on a daily basis.The Auburn School District is proud to recognize Chinook Elementary School for their Green efforts in 2014/2015!
