CCES nominated for Green Ribbon School.

Crabapple Crossing Elementary School (CCES) was recently nominated to represent Georgia as a Green Ribbon School in a national contest, one of only four schools in the state to receive the commendation.

Crabapple Crossing was chosen because it represented the "three pillars" of environmentally conscious activity: 1. Optimal efficiency in energy, water and waste management; 2. Healthy students and school environment; and 3. Environmental education.

Specifically, CCES was commended for being an Energy Star Certified, Clean Air and Evergreen school and its efficient watering plan, recycling program and outdoor learning habitat.

As part of the program, CCES could win up to $10,000 pledged by the Turner Foundation if it is awarded the Green Ribbon.
