推荐全球十大博彩公司排行榜, we intentionally teach the importance of preserving the future for generations to come. We educate and energize our students to help reduce our collective ecological footprint. 然后, we empower them to continue to do their part for our planet outside of campus 走进外面的世界 for their lifetime.
Our school has many ongoing sustainability initiatives designed to reduce our carbon footprint and raise awareness about the importance of conservation, including our progressive single-stream 回收 system and our 207kWh SunPower photovoltaic (PV) solar array in the Lufkin Rink.
太阳能电池板建设(Lufkin溜冰场): The solar panels on the roof of The Lufkin Rink were built in 2010 with a 207kWh SunPower photovoltaic (PV) system—the largest installation of energy-harnessing solar panels at any private school in Connecticut. The solar panels brought a huge benefit to the school and provided electricity for eight dormitories, 两个体育馆, 以及校园里的许多其他建筑.
We incorporate sustainability into our lessons in and out of the class. Through the science and humanities classes and our campus natural surroundings, we teach students a multi-faceted understanding of the environment. 例如, 参加2020年挑战赛, a leadership and service learning elective that strives to find local solutions to one of 20 global problems identified by the Global Issues Network, 上学校 students are taught the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations. Students then choose a goal that they are interested in and dig more into how they can help make a difference. One group of students even created a water bottle 回收 project that prevents plastic from damaging our planet's oceans and waterways.
回收的重要性, 重用, 我们全体学生都要学习还原法, 从低年级的Kindies项目开始. Students learn about the crucial nature of soil and how farmers utilize the earth's nutrients to grow our food. 较低的学校 students learn about the ecology of our on-campus Bantam River and are taught what they can do to help preserve a healthy river system. A Rocks and Minerals unit is in IInd Form (4th grade) to re-emphasize how important it is to protect the land around us. Both Lower and 上学校 students learn how to respect and be responsible towards nature and show care towards the planet.
Our students not only learn about sustainability, they take action! Equipped with the knowledge of their role on this planet as stewards of the precious natural resources on this planet, they embark on projects to make a difference on our campus, 走进外面的世界!
Focusing on community service, Upper-School students impact the environment in a positive way. Students travel to nearby beaches to assist in coastal clean-up ventures. They also adventure to nearby forested ecosystems to remove invasive plant species in order to make room for native plants and animals to thrive.
Even our smallest students are doing their part to create a healthy environment by raising trout eggs in their classroom. 每年，他们都会把鳟鱼放生到附近的河里.
The school has come together 作为一个社区 to collect bottle caps for the Sound Waters million bottle cap challenge. Instead of making their way into our coastal waters and posing danger to marine wildlife, 瓶盖被熔化成有用的家具. After months of collection, they have reached a total of over 46,545 caps!

"I wanted to construct this sustainability webpage for Rumsey because many people do not know that we, 作为一个社区, 做这样的事情. I wanted to provoke others in protecting the environment and spreading the awareness that we are global citizens. I already felt so proud to highlight the ongoing sustainability efforts in every facet of school life and motivate others to continue bettering the environment and improving all of our lives.——Wilson Xie, 22岁
