This week we had a full day of engagements with classes at Cavalier Drive School in Lower Sackville. Our goal at Green Schools is to serve the school to the best of our ability. Cavalier Drive is new to the Green Schools roster so we took the opportunity to give them a big warm welcome by seeing every class. Ruvi visited the English-language classes and Kelsey visited the French Immersion classes while Olga Lucía helped all around on Monday, December 10th.

Make This the Greenest Holiday of the Year!
Numerous schools in the Annapolis Valley and Tri-county Regional Centers for Educations reduce their holiday impact by hosting Annual Christmas "Shopping" Parties. These are events that create a great way to reuse ‘stuff’ and reduce our ecological footprints while finding the perfect gift for your loved one.
