Long Beach schools are going green. Teachers, support staff, administrators and parents who would like to assist with recycling and other sustainability efforts are invited to the Green Summit at Hughes Middle School from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 16. The school is at 3846 California Ave., Long Beach.
School district, city and local non-profit representatives will provide information on campus sustainability. Learn about the latest recycling changes and how to get started at your school with sorting and recovering food, cans, bottles, paper and more. The aim is for each school to have a green site coordinator.
Event sponsors include Long Beach Unified School District Nutrition Services, LBUSD Operations, Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services (Bureau of Environmental Health), Long Beach Public Works Department (Environmental Services Bureau), Algalita, Food Finders and Grades of Green.
A stipend rate is available for teachers/staff attending the summit (register in myPD for either the classified employee or certificated employee section of Course 9160).
