Go Green Initiative & Gifts for Students

Noddin became a Go Green School in 2007 and continues to work collaboratively with the San Jose Environmental Department that consults and assists schools with this mission.  We have and continue to reduce our trash to a minimum.  Students are active participants and are very proud to be a part of this program. We are recycling, reducing and reusing as a site and continue to look for ways to reduce our impact on the planet in a negative way.  Each student is an Environmental Advocate and does his/her part to assist this program.  We request that when you attend celebratory functions for your student, that you select an environmentally friendly reward.  Parents have become very creative over the years and students are appreciative of the acknowledgement and also careful selection of the Green Gift!   
Birthday Celebrations/Bouquet Balloons

A birthday celebration during classroom time is a teacher decision and age-appropriate instructions for this special event will be shared with you during Back-to-School night.  Many classrooms do not allow food of any celebration due to the large number of students with allergies.  Bouquet balloons will not be delivered to classrooms as they disrupt the instruction and we are a Go Green School. Balloons can harm marine animals and the environment.
