Ban On Polystyrene In the Moraga School District
Photo taken on September 13, 2016 after the Governing Board approved Resolution 17-16, Ban on Polystyrene in the MSD, supporting the JM ECO Club's request to eliminate the use of polystyrene at any District school.
Pictured above from left to right: Board member O'Donnell, Maddie H., Aislinn W., Lexi Y., Board member Severy, Emily M., Board President Simon, Caitlin M., Board VP Nickens, Ava S., Board member Obsitnik, ECO Club teacher Kim Lockett and Superintendent Burns.
On September 13, 2016, the Moraga School District Governing Board voted unanimously to ban the use of polystyrene (Styrofoam). Former JM ECO Club members presented health and environmental information and research to the Board at the September meeting and following a presentation to the Board last spring. ECO Club students previously presented information to the JM PTA resulting in a ban of polystyrene products at JM that were once used to serve hot lunch. ECO Club students, advised by JM science teacher Kim Lockett, are to be commended for their advocacy and making a difference for all MSD students. A copy of the approved resolution which bans the use of polystyrene during the school day and for all groups using our facilities can be found Here.
