Student-led Composting Effort at Doherty

Doherty’s Green Team, an environmental club for Unit III students, is spearheading the effort to bring composting to the Doherty Campus. Working with club advisors Julie Brackett and Kacey Watkins and pre-kindergarten and kindergarten parent Nachy Kanfer, the Unit III students learned about composting and prepared a presentation for the early childhood students. Composting is starting in the early childhood classrooms with the hopes of expanding it to the cafeteria. The Green Team made containers for each of the early childhood and After the Bell classrooms, so the waste could be transported to the compost bin. The team also presented their project to the entire school on the Doherty News.
