Grades of Green is excited to announce that our 50th school, Richardville Elementary from Bowling Green Kentucky, just registered to be a Grades of Green school! <--break->Welcome Kentucky! This means that since our launch this year on Earth Day, we now have 50 schools representing 29,586 students in 9 states participating in the Grades of Green program. Incredible!!!

Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.” Grades of Green would like to thank all of the schools out there working everyday to inspire and educate students to care for the environment. Your work is making a difference and together, we can change the world! These students inspire their families who in turn inspire their communities. This is a gift these children are giving to our planet that will continue for the rest of their lives. So please, take a minute to pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself for a job well done. You deserve it!
