The Family Literacy Night at John Muir Elementary School was a big success. Families were able to enjoy literacy activities like fun tongue twisters, reading tic-tac-toe, a book fair and a book giveaway.
Students learn about sustainability through instruction on conservation and natural resources in science, social studies and other areas.
Community partners also provide assistance. For example, the King County Green Schools Program provides assistance, educational resources and recognition for schools. Sustainability Ambassadors inspires students to initiate sustainability goals in their communities and measure performance along the way.

School Sustainability Efforts
The King County Green Schools (KCGS) program recently handed out recognition to schools for their work in resource conservation. Several schools from Lake Washington School District (LWSD) were acknowledged for their efforts as part of this program.
Students across the district supported and celebrated sustainability efforts in their schools all week for Earth Day 2022.
