The Hemlock Huskies school color-blue continues to grow a shade of green. The Hemlock Public School District is committed to sustainable efforts to reduce, reuse, and recycle.

Board of Education President, Dr. Ellison said, “Our recycling program has given Hemlock the opportunity to take better care of our environment for future generations and creates a wonderful occasion for students to learn why this is important.”

The school district sponsored a going green promotion campaign to encourage students to share their ideas, thoughts, and have their voice included in the green efforts. This year, the theme was composting.

At the regular May Board of Education meeting award recipients were recognized. The award recipients for the 2019 Recycling Competition are as follows:

  • Video:  Alexander Twigg
  • Essay:  Seth Byrne
  • Poster:  Jessica Berlin

The district continues to be a leader in innovation, collaboration, and education.  The school district is advocating to reduce waste, reuse materials whenever possible, and to recycle.

Superintendent Killingbeck said, “This a wonderful opportunity for our students and staff. It helps cultivate stewardship of the environment and community.”
