menu-industrial-lighting-onFifth Grade Green Team Systems Thinking Project
When: FIFTH GRADE DUNK TANK FUNDRAISER, Friday May 30, 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m..
What: LED fundraiser for gym. Goal: $3,510
This is a Green Team/Systems Thinking Project: Operation A.S.A.P. (Advertising, Sales, Accounting, Planning) We will be working on this throughout the week
Ways to help:
1. Dunk Tank Tickets: $1 each, can be purchased from any fifth grader before and after school
2. Donations: checks payable to Winterhaven School will be deposited into Winterhaven’s Facilities Improvement Account.

LED’s will:

  • double the light output (quantity)
  • increase light quality
  • use less than half the electricity (saves money, less pollution)
  • decreases maintenance/replacement, will need replacement in about 25 years
  • decreases solid and chemical waste, eliminates toxins such as mercury, LED system can be recycled/down cycled.
  • impact current and future students at Winterhaven (lunch and PE)
