School Light Monitors
By Wendy Dew
Have you ever heard of hall monitors? How about ” light monitors “? Students around the country have been creative in teaching teachers how to turn out the lights when not in use to save energy. Student light monitors check out classrooms and other rooms to see if the lights have been turned off if no one is using them. Teachers who do not turn out the lights when they leave the room get a ticket from the light monitors. Great idea!
