Over the years, Green Holly became a certified Maryland Green School through the Maryland Association of Environmental and Outdoor Education (MAEOE). This two year certification process included recycling programs, planting projects in the newly renovated on-site greenhouse, environmentally themed lessons and field trips, and community involvement. While certification was a significant accomplishment, our work is not done. Green Holly will now enter a four year recertification process. During recertification, we hope to build on our existing programs, and also find new ways to create awareness and encourage our school community to become stewards of the environment.

 

 

  

We currently have a small group of dedicated staff, students, and family members as part of our Green School Team. If you are interested in being involved, we would like to hear from you. Please contact Rachel Litz atrelitz@smcps.org or 301-863-4064.
