Green Team


This Green Team Committee organizes the FCMA endangered animal sponsorship vote every January/February, navigates, documents, and maintains the criteria for FCMA’s Green School Status, and organizes the parent-driven recycling program at FCMA.

Recycling at FCMA is 100% volunteer driven!

With more students than ever, we are now looking for volunteers to help pick up recycling three times a week. Times are flexible and the process is simple. Recycle bins are located in the stairwells (up and down) and in the office copy room. Teachers and students bring everything from the classrooms to these bins.

What recycling volunteers do…

  • Empty the paper into the “Paper Retriever” Dumpster in the back parking lot. Please make sure there is no cardboard and reuse the plastic bag, if possible.
  • Container and paperboard/cardboard recycling can be recycled at your curbside or any local recycling center.
  • Consolidate items from all bins to reuse plastic bags, if possible.
  • Replace bags in bins as needed. Additional bags can be found at the bottom of each recycle bin.
  • If bags run out, please ask the office for assistance and email Courtney at

Recycling is a valuable practice for our children to learn as good stewards of our planet and is an important part of our Michigan Green School Certification. Whether it’s one day each month or just one day, your help is important and greatly appreciated!

With the funds collected during last school year’s “Endangered Species Coin Collection Drive,” the Parent Guild purchased a Button Bush to support the Indiana Bat’s habitat. The green bush with wide green leaves is located in front of the Middle School and its white flowers will attract the bats at dusk when the bats begin their hunting. A rain barrel has also been installed near the native garden to help conserve water runoff and to help water the nearby plantings.  Please email Jennifer Bartleman to volunteer for our next project.
