April 3 Program
12th Annual Green Schools Event

Join us at the 12th Annual Green Schools Event to celebrate student-driven sustainability projects in local schools!

This free event, which is open to the public, is the culmination of the 2018-19 Green Schools Quest – a project-based challenge to K-12 schools to implement a sustainability project over 6 months with the help of a USGBC-MGC Green Mentor.

59 school/mentor teams in the St. Louis region are participating this school year.

Winners will be announced at the event and participating schools will display posters detailing their projects. Several winning schools will take the stage to tell the fun and inspiring stories of their experiences. Attendees will find out how they can participate in the 2019-20 Green Schools Quest, as schools or mentors.

Flance Learning Center opened to students in June 2014, and aims to be an exemplary early
learning center, serving children of all incomes and backgrounds, six-weeks to six-years of age in a new, $11.5 million facility. The center’s design team placed heavy emphasis on ensuring that indoor and outdoor spaces were resource-efficient, free of toxins, healthy for students, comfortable for teachers, and cost-effective.  In recognition of this emphasis on health and environmental
sustainability, Flance Center is registered to become only the 4th LEED for Schools Certified
Preschool in the world.   Universal Design features are also incorporated to create a convenient
experience for staff and students, regardless of physical ability, thereby creating an environment in which special-needs and typical-needs children can thrive side-by-side in the same classrooms.
