Education Spotlight: Mary G. Hogsett Wins Green Ribbon Schools Award
We are thrilled to spotlight Mary G. Hogsett Primary School this month! They recently were recognized as one of the 2023 U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools award honorees for their work to reduce campus impacts, improve health and wellness, and integrate environmental education! Hogsett’s primary students are immersed in thematic units on birds and trees, monitor trees, and bluebird boxes they have adopted on the school grounds. In their monthly lessons with Bluegrass Greensource, they’ve also been learning about water and water quality. This week, they planted hundreds of native plants along a stormwater drainage area in front of their school with their families.
