Green Week Starts Monday

e-Connections Post

Sac City Unified has partnered with community organizations and the U.S. Green Building Council Center for Green Schools to bring you Green Week 2017!

SCUSD celebrates Green Week to empower schools to engage in sustainability focused lessons, projects and activities! This year schools will learn about resource conservation and health and wellness through environmental education activities. Each day of the week covers a new topic and schools are encouraged to take this opportunity to spend time with students discussing sustainability and exploring ways they can make a difference at school, at home and in their communities.
