Green Genius Cafeteria Challenge

Don’t forget to participate in the Green Genius Cafeteria Challenge on November 17 (Friday), by making sure to throw your trash, recycling and compost in the correct bin during lunch and to eat what you can eat so we can waste less food! Also, there will be an extra bin to throw your trays away on that day, so please do so. Remember, this is a competition against other high schools in the district, if we win, we get a prize to show how much Sammamish Totems care about the environment more than they do, so make sure to participate!
