ECO Schools

Welcome to our NEW ECO Schools page!  We are a SILVER ECO School!

November 2013: We are very excited to have 12 native trees planted in our junior yard (east side)!

April 2014:  We have 2 dwarf cedars in planters at the John Street entrance!

May 2014:  We had a "friendly" ECO Door Design competition. Students worked collaboratively to decide on an important ECO message and designed their classroom doors using a variety of recycled materials.

June 2014:  We planted maple trees and a variety of plants in our Kindergarten, thanks to parents and volunteers. Our students built bird houses and created ECO messages that were mounted on our fencelines around our school. 

Please see the attached summary document of our accomplishments for 2013-2015!
