U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan joined White House Council on Environmental Quality Chair Nancy Sutley & EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson to announce the first-ever U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools, a list including 78 schools that span 29 states & D.C.
- Congratulations to Hampton Bays Middle School for earning recognition by the U.S. Department of Education as a national "Green Ribbon School" for 2012 for their success in reducing their energy use and environmental impact, creating healthy learning environments, and providing effective environmental education that prepares students to succeed in the 21st century. Only 78 schools nationwide received the "Green Ribbon" so we should all be very proud to have this outstanding institution in our community. Way to go Hampton Bays Middle School!
