Koontz has earned the title of: NC Green School of Excellence!
Dear Charles T. Koontz Intermediate School,
Congratulations! Your school has advanced its status to be an NC Green School of Excellence! We are so proud of all that your school is doing to teach the students about the importance and inter-connectedness of humans and nature and showing the students how to take care for the environment. We believe that this education will last a lifetime! We especially take note of your school's progress this year in the improved school gardens, the wonderful enthusiasm for sharing eco-centered professional development opportunities, creative waste reduction solutions, and more student involvement in community service projects.
We are excited to award you with an updated certificate and digital seal. I'll be sending your award certificate to display. Your official seal with your school name will arrive soon; the attached is a placeholder!
In the meantime, we hope you and your school community celebrate becoming a NC Green School of Excellence this year! And I look forward to visiting your school campus next year to have a tour and see all your progress.
Congratulations again from NC Green Schools and the Center for the Environment at Catawba College!
