Sustainability

Graland’s commitment to sustainability is prevalent in our school’s curriculum as well as in our habits as a community. The following statement was created by Graland’s Sustainability Committee, which is comprised of representatives from the buildings and grounds department, the Board of Trustees, administrators, teachers, parents and students:

Sustainability Statement

The Graland school community values practices that are environmentally sound, economically viable and socially equitable. The school strives to educate and empower each member of its community, now and in future generations, with the knowledge and motivation to make daily decisions that support sustainability.
"Use your feet or share a seat" is the theme for Go Green with Graland days during the school year. Whether you walk, bike, skateboard, ride the Graland bus, carpool or use public transportation, we'd love to see everyone participate in reducing emissions and saving our air quality!
