Evergreen has been named a Green School of Excellence! We received the designation from the NC Green Schools Program, an effort of the Center for the Environment at Catawba College in Salisbury. Evergreen Community Charter School received the highest honor, the NC Green School of Excellence. “This honor recognized the hard and important work that our teachers, staff, parents, students and partners do,” said Dr. Susan Mertz, the school’s director. “The work is important because of the lasting impact a green school curriculum, facility and culture have on children. Our students are advocates for green practices and stewards of our environment.” Being awarded the highest NC Green School level is “an honor and affirmation that we are living our mission,” Mertz said. The NC Green Schools Program promotes sustainability in the state’s public and private schools from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. It helps teachers connect and share ideas, offers resources and tools to help them start green initiatives and recognizes schools that meet specified goals.
