Last year, SPS made great achievements in resource conservation, thanks to participation from students, staff, communities, custodians, and maintenance personnel. Alki’s hard work has helped to avoid wasting resources and helped teach environmental stewardship. Since the district saved money on utility bills, each school’s contribution was calculated to provide successful schools with Shared Savings Awards.
A total of $65,475 will be shared with the winning schools. Awards will be transferred into each school’s Utility Conservation Budget and can be used to continue current conservation projects or begin new ones. A packet with usage graphs and award certificates has been mailed to each school, along with a special certificate for custodial staff.
Alki tied for first place for all participating Elementary Schools. Alki will be receiving $1000! This is the result of our amazing care for our school by our incredible Amy Fields!
Here is Miss Amy featured on the SPS website last year, for leading the way in recycling and composting.
