Introduction
In the Spring of 2008, NLHS theatre directors Mark Russell and Laura Hutchings met with a group of parents to discuss the show URINETOWN the Musical as a possible choice for the fall production.  There were many reasons to produce the show:  the award-winning music and book, students whose talents matched the characters, and the timely themes.  But the question on everyone's mind was,  "How do you sell tickets to a musical with such a shocking title?"  After considering a number of approaches, we outlined an advertising campaign that would educate our audience about the environmental theme of the show. The campaign included several "green" projects the URINETOWN cast would create.  "Very clever!" we thought. "Students will do service projects that can double as free marketing!" The advertising campaign would begin in August.

As important ideas tend to do, the "green" marketing approach began to grow.  Why not expand beyond the cast and include all students in the high school?  Wait!  What about the entire district? And the community!  Excitement grew as we realized what began as a self-serving marketing campaign was growing into something bigger and really important for our students and community.  Thus, NLISD's "green" project was born.

And what a beautiful baby!  The project has taken on "a life of it's own" as North Lamar ISD students and staff have fed it with their creativity and passion for Mother Earth.
Objectives
  • To raise environmental awareness of NLISD students, parents, and the community at-large.
  • To reduce the "environmental footprint" of NLISD.
  • To involve every student in the district in at least one project which addresses the above objectives.
