Green Team

At Chestnut Hill Academy, we have reached the “Sustaining” Level (the highest level) of accreditation through King County’s Green Schools program. Through the King County Green Schools program, we expanded waste reduction and recycling practices during our Level 1 year, reduced our impact on global warming through energy conservation during our Level 2 year, and added an additional focus on water conservation during our Level 3 year.  With the Sustaining Level our focus was on maintaining all of those previous efforts, with an additional emphasis on engaging the entire Student Body through an informative and comprehensive Earth Week event.  

Our environmentally friendly efforts and initiatives are led by our students, in the form of a Green Team comprised of representatives from second through fifth grade. The Green Team members participate in biweekly meetings and facilitate projects focused on recycling, composting, gardening, water conservation, and other important eco-friendly practices, with the goal of raising environmental awareness across the student body.

Green Team Advisors: Debbie Fox (Second Grade Teacher), Jeryl Kolb (Academic Specialist), and Monique Stuart-German (Director of Student Services)
