Grand View Elementary school is going green. A group of parent volunteers recently started a sustainability program that hopes to implement programs into the school that will teach the students to care for the environment. In addition, the parents hope to work with the District to encourage them to remove harmful pesticides and toxic cleaning supplies from the schools. Statistics show that these harmful toxins cause terrible health problems that increase absences and decrease productivity. The parents hope to use these statistics to persuade the District to make change. In addition, greening schools often leads to cost savings. Reductions in electricity and water usage will cut bills significantly and the volunteers even want to target the amount of trash pick-ups. Rhonda Steinberg, the Principal of Grand View, is all for it!  Her motto is “When Grand View Goes Green, We Really Go Green!” Read the full article in The Beach Reporter here.
