The CA Go Green team is comprised of faculty, staff, and board members included Angie Henson, Andrea Jacobson, Frances Traughber, Mike Veitenheimer, and Tim Sawyer.

These members attended training for three months and learned how to integrate practices at CA to create a green school action plan.

The entire PK-12 campus was involved in the green transformation process, using both faculty and staff as well as students. Lower school students join with Intermediate school students, who are members of the Builders Club, and volunteer to travel around campus daily collecting plastic and paper from each classroom and office.

The plan of action provided every classroom and office on campus recycling containers. Students of all ages embraced using technology and opting to digitally submit assignments to lower paper usage on campus. Additionally, the school food services team also embraced the change.

In the school cafeteria, the use of disposable plates and utensils was eliminated and a change has been made to washable trays, silverware, and recyclable cups. New campus construction is being included in the green school action plan. An example of building green efforts is installing motion light sensors to each room and office.

Head of School, Kay Drew added, “It should be the goal of every school to be a learning and teaching environment for the students and families. Energy, water, and resource reduction and conservation are our targets.”

Clarksville Academy is proud to support our community and our earth by celebrating being a part of the Go Green initiative
