For this month’s meeting, we welcome Dale Alekel, program manager from King County Green Schools (KCGS), as our guest speaker. Dale started KCGS 20 years ago and continues to work with a variety of King County schools on their sustainable goals. She will share resources that are available to our school communities and discuss how local PTA sustainability chairs can best support these efforts.
The LWPTSA Sustainability Committee meets monthly and focuses on raising awareness around sustainable initiatives district-wide, sharing resources, and connecting with one another. Community members are always welcome.
The Sustainability Committee is made up of local sustainability chairs at PTAs and schools across the district. The committee has worked on a range of issues, including food recovery, waste reduction, composting, green cleaning, no-idle zones, herbicide-free schools, and engaging and supporting students in their efforts to combat climate change and create a livable planet.
