Wellesley Green Schools Mission
Wellesley Green Schools is a collaborative group of students, parents and staff working together.
Our goal is to reduce Wellesley schools' ecological footprints, and inspire students to create a healthy sustainable world. Together, we help Wellesley school students learn environmental responsibility through waste reduction, energy reduction, and other earth friendly initiatives. This helps create healthy, sustainable, schools and community.
Interested in joining the fun? We have parent volunteers all over town. Just email us or subscribe to our newsletter below to learn about our next meeting or what is happening in your school.
