Green Schools Initiative

  • Green Schools Initiative  
    Green Schools Initiative, comprised of a proactive group of teachers, parents and local environmentalists, is currently overseeing the restoration of the beautiful wetland behind our school. Through a series of community service projects and curriculum related activities, students are gradually removing invasive plant species and replacing them with native bushes and trees. Our goal is to create an outdoor classroom filled with opportunities for scientific study, discovery, and contemplation. In the process as a school we are working to ensure that Countryside adopts green policies and procedures based on scientific principles and best practices, and that we enable our children through these efforts to become conscientious stewards of the environment.
