National Green Tour Visits MERSD

Tuesday the US Department of Education Green Tour visited MERSD.  It was wonderful event that showcased our Middle High School facility and celebrated the efforts that went into receiving the Green Ribbon award.   If you have a Twitter account you can see pictures and comments from me @beaudoinp as well as @greenschoolsorg and @EdGreenRibbon

The Commissioner of Education was here for the second time this year along with representatives from the National Board of Education. Also joining us were Gregory Federspiel, Manchester’s new Town Administrator, and Board of Selectmen representatives Tom Kehoe and Rob Hoff.  The students, with the support of faculty advisor Eric Magers, did a fabulous job representing the school and the GreenScholars program. This program is a distinguishing characteristic of our schools that is not only a model of  twenty-first century learning but also is a program bringing MERSD national recognition for having a progressive educational approach.
