Congratulations California and Colorado!
From California, we would like to welcome John S. Malcom, Greentree, and Las Palmes Elementary to the GUOS mob! And welcome back Stonegate Elementary - we are so happy to have you for a fourth year!
From Colorado, we would like to welcome Cotton Creek, Samuels, Castle Rock, Pioneer, and Heritage Elementary to the program!
We would like to thank all of the schools who applied to our program. We had many wonderful applications and only a few spaces to fill. We hope that those who were not accepted this year continue their green efforts and reapply next year,
THANK YOU ALL again!
One day, our children will ask:
"What's a trash can?"
Green Up Our Schools is a grant program that supports elementary school waste reduction & recycling programs.
Schools accepted into the program receive $2,000 over 3 years and personalized assistance achieving their goals.
The best part of the program is the accountability of the monthly phone calls. There's joint problem solving, sharing of information, relationship building -- the calls are the hallmark of the program.
