The California Green Ribbon Schools recognition award honors schools, school districts, and Institutes of Higher Education for excellence in resource efficiency, health, and wellness, and environmental and sustainability education. The recognition award is part of a larger effort to identify and communicate practices that result in improved student engagement, academic achievement, graduation rates, and workforce preparedness; and reinforces federal efforts to increase energy independence and economic security.
Margarita Middle School received a Silver level award. Margarita joins Ysabel Barnett Elementary, Susan LaVorgna Elementay, and Temecula Valley Unified School District in the 2019/2020 school year as TVUSD's three schools, along with the District, to be honored with this award!
This is quite the accomplishment and one we hope to get more schools involved in, in the coming years!
