We are thrilled to announce that:

 

The Greene School is a 2014 US Department of Education Green Ribbon School!

 

 

Acting Chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality Mike Boots joined U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan on April 22 to announce the 2014 U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools award honorees. 

 

"Today's honorees are modeling a comprehensive approach to being green by encompassing facility, wellness and learning into their daily operations," said Secretary Duncan. "They are demonstrating ways schools can simultaneously cut costs, improve health, and engage students with hands-on learning that prepares them with the thinking skills necessary to be successful in college and careers."

 

"Schools all over the country can look to today's honorees as models for creating a healthier learning environment while lowering energy bills and preparing students for success in the 21st century economy," said Acting Chair Mike Boots. "The schools and districts being honored today are taking smart, innovative steps to reduce environmental impacts and teach students the kinds of sustainable practices that they can carry with them into their homes and future careers."

 

This award wouldn't have been possible without the hard work of Mr. Haggerty and his intensive students along with all the members of this school community that work towards our vision and mission every day.
