Carnation Elementary has been recognized as a 2022 Sustaining Green School, with additional honors given to the school’s student conservation Green Team for activities in sustainability during the 2021-2022 school year.
The King County Green Schools Program assists student teams, teachers, and other school and district staff to expand knowledge and understanding of sustainability and to take steps to become more sustainable.
Being named a Sustaining Green School indicates that Carnation Elementary’s Level One, Two, and Three practices have been consistently met and maintained, while the school earned the designation of a Sustaining Green School by completing an additional conservation action or educational strategy.
Carnation Elementary first entered the King County Green Schools Program in 2008, earning Level One status in May 2009, Level Two status in May 2011, and Level Three status in May 2012. The school has been consistently a Sustaining Green School each year since the 2014-15 school year.
Award recognition banners will be posted at the school, and student team members earned prizes for their hard work and leadership around conservation and sustainability practices in the school setting.
Congratulations to Carnation Elementary for their ongoing commitment to the Green Schools program and to students, staff, and families for all their encouragement and support in continuing the initiatives the Green Schools program promotes around environmental stewardship and resource conservation.
