Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it’s not.

Our Eco Warriors group is open to students in grades 4th through 8th.
Our mission is to be stewards of God’s creation. We vow to:
– Use our resources wisely
– Recycle all that we can
– Save the environment by starting with our own community
The Eco Warriors have been working on establishing an environmental classroom on the school premises, developing school-wide recycling and composting programs, among other things.
CARING FOR OUR COMMON HOME CHALLENGE – April 2016 Winners
Sponsored by the Immaculate Heart of Mary Sisters – Monroe, MI
We were very excited to hear about this challenge, as we have been working very hard as a school to go green!! In working with the Southeast Michigan Stewardship Coalition (SEMIS) for the past few years, our Professional Learning Community has made it a mission to connect students and staff to the world around us.
To help us make this connection, we have adopted the following essential question:
“How can we become better stewards of God’s Creation?”
Our learning reflects this mission in many ways. From the formation of a student driven environmental club (“The JPII Eco Warriors”), to a school-wide recycling/composting initiative, to the building of an outdoor environmental classroom, we are working very hard to care for the world around us; i.e. to become better stewards of God’s creation!
