Some of you folks may have been following the progress of Exploris Middle School. The past few months they have been working to obtain the Green Ribbon School title for North Carolina. After winning the award for its district, Exploris was nominated by NC Department of Instruction, School Planning, based on the three pillars of green schools: reduced environmental impact and costs, improved health and wellness, and effective environmental and sustainability education.Yesterday, the US Secretary of Education announced that Exploris Middle School won for North Carolina. I know the students and educators over there have been working very hard to create a sustainable school and integrate environmental education as part of their programming. Yesterday showed that all the hard work paid off.
Great Job you guys! Keep up the good work!
