Save Energy at School

Most schools spend more money on energy than on computers and textbooks combined. Here's how you can help your school reduce energy waste.

Lights and Computers

  • Pick an energy monitor to make sure lights and computers are turned off before recess and lunch, and after school.
  • Create a "Save Energy" sign to hang near your classroom light switches to remind people to turn lights off when not in use.

Heating and Cooling

  • Make sure books or furniture does not block the vents in your classroom.
  • Encourage everyone to keep doors and windows closed when heating or air conditioning is running.


  • Turn off the water in the bathroom when you are finished using it.
  • Report any water leaks you find to your teacher or school custodian.
