Spring Semester Kick Off Meeting & Awards Ceremony

Hi all,

Hope you're all having a great week!

If you participated in any way last semester in the Green Star Schools Program, you will be awarded money for your student's efforts to make their school more energy efficient and resource conscious.


I'll keep this short and sweet: please consider attending the kick off meeting next week (details below). It's sad to announce winners who will win more than $1,000 followed by an awkward silence because you didn't show up and it's always tempted to give it to another school, so be there or be square!


As always, I am here to help find resources related to sustainability and environmental education in order to accelerate learning for every student, every day.

Again, thank you for sharing your time and talent with our students and I look forward to seeing you all next week!

Best,

Julie
