Save the Date! 2015 Oregon Green Schools Summit

school toolsThe 2015 Oregon Green Schools Summit will be held on Friday, April 3, 2015 at the Western Mennonite School in Salem.

The Summit is an opportunity for students from across the state to convene for a day of celebration, learning and networking. At the summit, we strive to celebrate the accomplishments of each school and to provide opportunities to strengthen programs. Students will attend educational sessions that represent each section of the Oregon Green Schools application: waste reduction and recycling, water conservation, and energy conservation. Students will also attend a session where they can share the story of the green school program at their school and learn from other schools.

Schools with active Oregon Green Schools certification are invited to bring 4-5 students and 1 chaperone. Costs for a classroom substitute teacher and travel expenses will be generously covered by each school’s garbage/recycling hauler.

Contact your regional coordinator if you have questions regarding your school’s certification status and watch for registration and program details in the coming months in the Oregon Green Schools monthly newsletter and on oregongreenschools.org.

We’re looking forward seeing you in Salem this spring!
