Hello, fellow Hornets! I hope you have all been enjoying this gorgeous weather that we have been experiencing! This week’s blog will focus on a few topics, but mostly we will discuss the Global Coalition for Green Schools. Let’s get started!
The Center for Green Schools website (http://www.centerforgreenschools.org/globalcoalition) explains that the Global Coalition for Green Schools was enacted to create a global force which helps to ensure that every child has access to a green school within his or her lifetime. These schools are located all across the globe, and “…work tirelessly to make their schools healthy, safe and efficient.” The members of this international organization collaborate to help spread the most successful programs, practices, and resources for schools that wish to offer truly sustainable and holistic education for their students.
This video, offered on the Center for Green Schools website, offers an informational visual illustration of how this organization has helped to change the lives of students from all over the world:

Before we wrap this blog up, I also want to take the time to encourage you all to attend the various presentations offered during the Student Scholar Showcase this upcoming Wednesday, April 9th. The poster presentations will be happening from 12 pm – 1 pm in the Ballroom and will be left up all day. The oral presentations will be offered throughout the day from 8:30 am - 5:30 pm. I guarantee that you will find several presentations that include topics of interest to you. More importantly, it is essential for us all to show our support for our fellow Hornets. I will be there with two separate posters, each focusing on Sustainability. Go out, and support your peers!!
Finally, I hope that you will all keep your eyes out for next week’s blog, which will highlight our Claytor Nature Study Center’s Eco Lodge Dedication!
As always, I appreciate any questions, comments, or suggestions to email@example.com.
