Welcome back!

We hope that you had a lovely and relaxing summer! 
The Green School Committee is excited to have you back and we are here and ready to help you green your classrooms!


1) This year we are NOT CHANGING much! We felt like the streamlined GS activity reporting went great! 

2) Save the date for the Green School Kick Off: September 13 at the Hi Lo from 4 to 6 PM. Drop in to pick up your GS gifts, grab some program info, have a snack, and network with your colleagues!

3) Coordinators will receive an email confirming participation for themselves and their school.

4) Teachers can sign themselves up this year. A subscription to the ACORN is your enrollment in the GS program. No strings to participate. Lurking welcome! Just get a monthly email alerting you to free programming that is available to you!
