Sustainability at PS 102

Climate Action Days

For this first time ever, throughout the 2023-24 schoolyear, NYC Public Schools are launching 4 themed Climate Action days to promote student learning and empowerment around climate action. PS 102 is participating in each day with school-wide student-led actions and events. Check back here or at NYC Public Schools Office of Sustainability for more information. 

Climate Action Day 1: Energy

Students at P.S. 102 played an important role in preparing for and participating in NYC Public Schools' first ever Climate Action Day on December 6th, 2023. Because the theme for CAD 1 was energy, students participated in lessons on conserving energy. Students brainstormed ways they could raise awareness about our plan to turn lights off on our first Climate Action Day, and then worked hard to make beautiful posters for the school hallways. Two students made morning announcements on the day of the event to encourage participation. Many classes participated in turning lights off and letting the sunshine in. Because of hard student' work, P.S. 102 was ready to conserve energy on our Climate Action Day!

Climate Action Day 2: Waste

Students at P.S. 102 participated in Climate Action Day 2, on February 7th, by learning why it important to make less waste. To participate in this city-wide event, P.S. 102 expanded its already existing waste reducing actions including plastic free lunches and waste sorting stations including curbside composting. A Green Team of student cafeteria monitors now works every lunch to support younger students in throwing their trash away in the cafeteria correctly.
