The Hudson School District has much to celebrate as was evidenced by
dignitaries on hand for the event. It is expected that River Crest Elementary School will be the first school in the state to reach the Gold level of LEED certification, the highest level available.
A small group of students and parents gathered at the flagpole at River Crest Elementary School Sept. 18 to start what might become a weekly walk.
Principal Pat Hodges came up with the idea to start a walking “club” — with parents gathering at 8:15 each Thursday morning to walk with their children on the path that surrounds the perimeter of the school, weather permitting.
As construction nears an end on River Crest Elementary School and teachers begin to move in, the architects and builders believe they have not only built a good school, but an extraordinary one and for less than expected.
A small gathering of less than a dozen people attended the public meeting Monday night during which Mark Hanson, who works for Hoffman Architects as an expert on sustainable building and design, presented a PowerPoint program, “River Crest Elementary: A Teaching Tool for Environmental Sustainability.”
Earth Day is April 22. Most schools already celebrate Earth Day by reminding kids to recycle, to not litter, plant trees, and take care of the Earth. River Crest Elementary, the new school being built in Hudson, will make every day Earth Day.
