State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond today announced that Golden View Elementary and 24 other schools throughout the state earned 2020 California Green Ribbon Schools awards. Green Ribbon Schools demonstrate exemplary achievement in three important pillars: reducing environmental impact and costs; improving the health and wellness of schools, students, and staff; and providing effective environmental education that teaches many disciplines and is especially good at effectively incorporating STEM, civic skills, and green career pathways.
“Congratulations to this year’s honorees,” said Thurmond. “California Green Ribbon Schools expertly use local approaches to tackle global issues such as sustainability and environmental literacy. Students are not only learning and practicing environmental stewardship, but also sharing those sustainable practices with their families and in their communities.”
“This award is really special as Golden View Elementary is an Environmental Science School with a motto of ‘recycle, reuse and repurpose.’ We are so proud that they have been recognized for conserving resources while promoting health and environmental literacy,” commented Dr. Carol Hansen, Superintendent of Ocean View School District.
