Rainbow Community School recently was recognized for its efforts at environmental sustainability and the innovative ways in which students and staff aim to learn about and take care of our planet.
The NC Green Schools Committee of the Reading, Riding, Retrofit non-profit organization recently recognized Rainbow as a Green School of Excellence. We are the first to receive such an award.
Rainbow was judged according to five categories: Culture/Community, Curriculum Integration, Healthy Schools, Sustainability and Innovation. We scored very high, which allowed us to become the first NC school to achieve the NC Green School of Excellence Award. The other two categories are NC Green School of Quality and NC Green School of Promise.
On May 19th, judges from NC Green Schools will be coming to campus to have a celebration with us at 10 am. Parents are invited to attend.
On behalf of Rainbow, there is a press release on the Mountain Express website, found here:
