One of the committees I serve on is called Project Green. Committee membership includes parent and teacher representatives from each of our four schools and the principals at Mary E. Silveira and Dixie Elementary. The Committee Chair is Will Anderson, principal at Mary E. Silveira.
In November, we decided by consensus to pursue the Green Ribbon award for our district. The Green Ribbon Schools Award Program honors schools and districts that conserve resources while promoting health and environmental literacy.
This month, we started to document the work we have done so far which would support our application. Our next step will be to identify which areas we would like to work on. I would to include students from each school in our committee's work.
Applications are due in December 2017.
