Green Apple Day of Service 2015

CHES is very excited to be participating for the third year in the Green Apple Day of Service, an international movement through the USGBC Center for Green Schools.

This year, we'll be working on a project to turn our eight classroom trailers into assets by transforming them into environmental-themed learning cottages.  Each trailer will have its own theme, and will be decked out with educational signage from VA Print Shop, decorative flags and door mats, and colorful planters that will be maintained as a service project by The Brickman Group landscaping.

This project was made possible by a grant received from Keep Virginia Beautiful.  Thank you to KVB, Brickman, and all of the school staff, PTA volunteers, and community volunteers that are helping out with this!

If you'd like to come to our Green Apple service day, it will be held Saturday October 3rd.  Sign up here, or just show up!
