Tahoma - 1st to Achieve Level 3

This spring, Tahoma School District became the first school district to be recognized as a Level Three Green School District by completing that level’s water conservation criteria. The district also completed Level Two during this past school year by focusing on energy conservation. All eight Tahoma School District schools have completed Level One and Level Two, and five of the schools also have completed Level Three. This accomplishment can be owned by many in our district, but leading the way in this effort on meeting the standard for a Green District is our operations department under the leadership of Lori Cloud. Our building custodians have been integral in this effort, leading the way in many of the cost saving measures involving energy and water use. A partnership between student Green Teams and custodial staff have made huge differences in the amount and types of waste generated with recycling programs at every school and composting at most schools.

Great job to the students and staff in Tahoma!

You are making a difference in our world.
