Cape and CCMS awarded Green Certification Level 1

Cape Horn-Skye Elementary and Canyon Creek Middle School were recently awarded Level 1 certification by the Washington Green Schools Team.
To fulfill the requirements for Level 1, students and staff have worked hard to conserve energy by turning off lights when they leave the rooms; closing the blinds at night; and turning off computers, projectors, and other electrical devices before they leave for the day. They also have implemented a successful composting program using the food scraps from lunches.
