The Acton-Boxborough Regional School District (ABRSD) and the Acton Public Schools (APS) were awarded the U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools Award (ED-GRS) in 2013. The ED-GRS award honors schools that are exemplary in reducing environmental impact and costs, improving the health and wellness of students and staff, and providing effective environmental and sustainability education, which incorporates STEM, civic skills, and green career pathways. ABRSD-APS is one of only 14 US school districts to receive this honor in 2013. Read the boston.com article. Find out more.
Monthly Green Acton Meetings are usually on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at the Acton Memorial Library. This is a great way to meet other Green Acton members and plug in to the work we are doing.
