Bay Farm School Earns National Honor
Principal Babs Freitas, teacher and Go Green coordinator Michele Kuttner and Media Center teacher, Roxanne Clement traveled to Washington, D.C. for the 2016 U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools recognition ceremony to accept the award for Bay Farm Elementary School. Bay Farm was one of 47 schools honored. The local school was the only public school nominated for this federal program by the California Department of Education Green Ribbon School committee in 2016.
“It was so exciting to represent Alameda for the first time at this event,” said Kuttner.
Green Ribbon Schools are recognized for their commitment to conservation of resources, environmental education and work to improve health and wellness of students and staff. Find out more about the green school program at www2.ed.gov/programs/green-ribbon-schools/faq.html
