Level 3 Green Schools
Grass Valley Elementary: This school was certified at Level 3 in school grounds. The Green Team worked to breathe new life into neglected areas of the campus and organized weeding parties to help keep areas free of invasive species. It also planned a composting center for leaves, other vegetation and kitchen scraps.


Skyridge Middle School: This school was certified at Level 3 in Waste & Recycling, Transportation, and Healthy School Buildings. The Green Team began an educational campaign and replaced all of their antibacterial spray with an all-natural, environmentally responsible alternative. The Green Team also continues to maintain the changes that they have achieved in past certifications through the implementation of recycling programs, no-idling zones, and student-led efforts to lessen Skyridge’s environmental footprint. Thanks to their efforts, Skyridge is now a healthier, more sustainable place! Sky Hawks Logo - Full Color
