Our Story

      Five years ago, our school registered with a program called Sustainable Jersey for Schools. This is “a certification program for New Jersey public schools that want to go green, conserve resources and take steps to create a brighter future…” We created a mandated Green Team in conjunction with our Wellness Council. The team includes administrators, teachers, paraprofessionals, support staff, parents, Board members, and students.

      Meetings, which are held on the first Monday of most months, are open to interested staff, families, and community members.Watch for meeting announcements in the monthly school
newsletter. Our team prioritizes actions and highlights activities that are already in place.

      In our first year of participation, we were honored to earn a Bronze Certification. In 2016 our school earned the highest certification, Silver, with over 350 points. Only 8 other NJ
schools earned this honor; it was quite an accomplishment!

      This year, we are again going for the Silver (there is no gold). If you are interested in Healthy Schools, Green Living, Learning Environments, School Culture & Climate, and STEAM Programs!

Would you like to join our team? 

Feel free to reach out and come to our next meeting!
