Congrats Mrs. Solak for helping make Arno Green!

Dear Mrs. Solak,

I received and reviewed your Michigan Green School activity verification.  Congratulations! Because of the hard work from the teachers, students and parents, Arno Elementary School has received the 2017 Michigan Evergreen School designation, by completing at least 20 energy saving and environmental tasks.  The efforts you made to complete the tasks are very impressive.  I especially enjoyed learning about your composting project, rain barrels and the GLEP field trip.  I urge Arno Elementary School to continue with the energy saving and environmental tasks and hope you encourage others to follow.

Thank you for the well written and organized documentation, I very much appreciate it. 

I will stay in contact with you regarding your certificate, banner, and the 10 year anniversary recognition ceremony, which has been scheduled for May 16, 2017.   Please note that if you already received a banner you will be receiving an annual decal to place on your banner.

Go Green and Stay Green,

Nancy Gregor

Wayne County Michigan Green School Co-coordinator
