SCUSD’s 3rd Annual Green Week Starts October 1

e-Connections Post

Join this year’s celebration to learn about resource conservation through environmental education.

This year’s activities are provided in partnership with EcoRise, a nonprofit organization that empowers youth to tackle real-world challenges in their schools and community by teacher sustainability, design innovation and social entrepreneurship.

Each day of the Green Week covers a new topic and schools are encouraged to take this opportunity to spend time with students exploring ways they can make a difference at school, at home and in their communities.

These activities are just a sample of the sustainability curriculum SCUSD teachers can access free of charge through the Sustainable Schools Program.
