We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and increasing our energy efficiency, and have recently done some work to jump start that effort by…

  • Switching to LED lighting on and around the exterior of our main building
  • Setting and monitoring the thermostats to keep electrical costs lower
  • Teaching kids the importance of recycling by starting a Random Acts Of Kindness group for our 4th and 5th grade Club members
  • Currently upgrading to a commercial dishwasher in the kitchen so that we can eliminate the use of 350 Styrofoam trays per day
  • Installed sensor sinks in all of our bathrooms to save water
  • Installed auto light sensors in all gymnasiums and indoor soccer field
  • Dental Clinic turns off the air compressor after each use to save energy
  • Our Elementary/main building is solar powered
  • Window blinds installed in both buildings to insulate the windows which keep out the heat during the summer and trap it inside during the winter
