For our environmental effforts in three pillars – reducing environmental impact and costs; improving the health and wellness of schools, students, and staff; and providing effective environmental and sustainability education – The Kentucky Environmental Education Council has selected Redwood Cooperative School as a nominee for recognition as a US Department of Education Green Ribbon School. The US Department of Education will announce awardees in May and we will find out at that time if we have been named a US Green Ribbon School.
Regardless of whether our school is selected by the US Department of Education for national recognition, we will be recognized as a Kentucky Green Ribbon School, which is an incredible honor. The Kentucky Green Ribbon School certificate will be presented at the Kentucky Green and Healthy Schools Youth Summit and Awards Luncheon on April 23 and our Leadership Team will represent Redwood at the awards program.
Congratulations to all of our students and the team effort of teachers, staff and families that has gone into making our school a pillar of environmental stewardship, literacy and learning!
