Congratulations, PFE! PFE has received a 2016 US Department of Education Green Ribbon School Award. It was a joint venture with contributions from Stacy McDermott, Carly Funk, Mimi Cooper, Amy Schirf, Van Swauger, Ed Poprik, Mike Spicer, Danny Gill, Megan Schaper, Jen Cody and Donnan Stoicovy. All of the work PFE has done over many years from Schoolyard and its professional development elements, to composting, to gardens, to mindfulness, to physical activity, to wellness, to zero waste and all of the many sustainable activities that are done in our classrooms/school. This is a great tribute to PFE and all the hard work that makes our school a great place for learning!

On April 20th, our PFE Green Team was featured at a meeting of the Chesapeake Bay Project. Although we could not attend due to PSSA testing, members of our Green Team worked with Mimi Cooper to produce an amazing video about our efforts to reach Zero Waste. Attendees at this project meeting included Governors, Senators, Congressional Representative, Secretaries of Education and Conservation & Natural Resources. We are proud of all of the work that has been done at our school to have 85% of the waste produced diverted from the landfill. It is amazing to see our school's journey. Teachers will be sharing this video with their students as part of Earth Week/Earth Day Celebrations. Here is the link to our video, please enjoy and share our journey. http://youtu.be/GRucrh_d5zg
