|Earth Week 2016|
Congratulations to Bay Farm School and Ms.Kuttner (who leads the way) on becoming a National Green Ribbon School as well as California's Green Ribbon School. Our National status was announced April 22, 2016. (You can see the video announcement below)
Our Principal Ms. Freitas and Ms.Kuttner, who is our Alameda Green Schools Challenge coordinator, will travel to Washington, D.C. in July for the award ceremony.
We have worked a very long time to be worthy of Green Ribbon status. Over the years we have adopted a culture of recycling and conservation. and reduced the waste that is sent to the landfill. As we celebrate Earth Day, join us in activities and projects that help us do even more to save our environment and the earth.
