    Manzanita SEED and Manizanita Community School both participated in the Alliance to Save Energy Energy Hog Assembly. Through this assembly, students learned ways to conserve energy, as well as energy wasting behaviors. During this educational content, they remained engaged through the mischievous character of the "Energy Hog."

     Students have been engaged on campus through an Energy Bulletin Board, which tracks energy usage as compared to other schools and highlights energy conserving behaviors on campus. Students, teachers, and custodians are able to see different energy saving tips through flyers. Students and staff members are reminded to turn off the lights with stickers on light switches.
     
    The emPower team is excited to announce that Manzanita has reduced their energy use by 21% over their baseline in April! This is equivalent to avoiding the carbon emissions from over 500 gallons of gasoline! The emPower team hosted a successful Energy Breakfast for Manzanita teachers, and offered materials to promote energy conserving behaviors over bagels, coffee, and fresh strawberries. The emPower team was able to make a brief appearance in Ms. Marx’s T-K class. Her students know so many ways to save energy, so a big thank you to Ms. Marx for her work in promoting conserving behaviors in the classroom! Keep on saving, Manzanita SEED!
