On March 29, State
Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond announced that 20 schools,
three districts, and one county won the 2019 California Green Ribbon Schools
Award. St. Martin of Tours Academy was recognized as a California Green Ribbon
School at the Gold level.
“California Green Ribbon Schools engage our kids to understand and
act on behalf of their environment. From global-sized problems like
climate change to local challenges like water quality, sustainability
education grows the creativity, critical thinking skills, and
environmental literacy our students need in order to lead now and into
the future,” Thurmond said.
In order to earn the Green Ribbon, schools must demonstrate exemplary achievement in three areas:
Reduce environmental impact and costs
Improve the health and wellness of schools, students, and staff
Provide effective environmental education that teaches many disciplines and is especially good at effectively incorporating science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, civic skills, and green career pathways Press Release
