National recognition day . . .

Today was the day that the National Green Schools were recognized in Washington D.C. by Secretary Duncan. As I have shared before, our Tahoma Junior High was one of the 78 schools that received this honor, the first of its kind. Representing the school at this event were Kim McHenry and Nancy Skerritt. I just happened to find the photo below that shows Nancy and Kim listening to the Secretary’s comments. They were able to also attend sessions to learn from others that I might just ask them to share in a guest post on this blog.

In this post from the department’s blog Homeroom, we learn that the next round of competition will be this winter when schools can apply at the state level for submittal to the federal department for national recognition. We certainly have additional schools that should be submitting an application this winter.

Below is the write-up for TJH that appeared in the document released by the department to highlight the winning schools accomplishments.
