Center Street School is a California Green Ribbon School

Center Street School has been named a California Green Ribbon School. PTA president, Tracey Miller-Zarneke and our principal, Ms. Monahan, accepted our Bronze Level award from State Superintendent of Instruction Tom Torlakson at a statewide event. Changes that we have made to our practices, including: recycling, composting, eliminating single use water bottles, planting drought tolerant gardens, encouraging walking to school and trash free lunches all contributed to our eligibility for this award. Only 17 public schools in California received the CA Green Ribbon School Award - so we feel very proud of our accomplishment. Our Green Team and all of the ecologically minded faculty, parents and staff continue to build earth consciousness in the next generation of citizens of our planet.
