1.2 million students spend their days in K-12 schools across Washington State. You can ensure they gain the skills and hands-on learning opportunities needed to be successful leaders. Our state depends upon the next generation… And Washington Green Schools is working with you to give them the tools they need to succeed.

Highland Park Elementary Kicks Off Commitment to Environmental Action

On October 15 Washington Green Schools gathered at Highland Park Elementary School alongside volunteers from the RAVE Foundation, Seattle Sounders FC, and Abbott Construction for a terrific Day of Service. Together we built and installed six garden beds, a worm composting bin, and a barrier for the new rain garden. Volunteers also planted trees, dug a trench to prevent flooding, created a new pathway, painted salmon sculptures, and helped manage food waste in the cafeteria. Whew, that’s quite the list! Thanks to all our volunteers, the Highland Park Elementary PTA, and Seattle Public Schools for their contributions and hard work. And thanks to Swansons Nursery for their donation of starts to plant in the raised beds!
