Lakes applied for and has been awarded the Michigan Green School Emerald Status! In order to achieve this status, Lakes provided the program documentation of required levels of environmental stewardship regarding reducing/reusing/recycling, energy usage/efficiency and environmental protection. We look forward to achieving more levels in order to gain the highest status of Evergreen in the future! Thank you to Dawn Bennett, Tami Avink and other staff for heading up this project and providing the Lakes family with opportunities to see how we can impact the environment!
