Congratulations to Council Rock!!!   Council Rock School District is one of only 9 school districts in the country to be named as a 2014 U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School District.  This is especially good news for CREF because several of the programs highlighted in the application were sponsored, in whole or in part, through grants from the Council Rock Education Foundation!

From our Trout in the Classroom grant at Welch Elementary, and CREF Electronic Recycling campaign, to the Organic Gardening grant at Newtown Elementary, and our annual support of the GREEN TEAM program run by Renee Devlin, we are so proud of the role CREF continues to play in supporting Council Rock’s environmental awareness and sustainability programs.

As Mark Klein said in his CRNews blast earlier today “The Green Ribbon School District Award is a reflection on all of us – students, schools, and our community.  We are proud to share this award with the entire Council Rock community!”
