August 15, 2018: We have kicked off a fundraising campaign with Lemongrass Spa to sell their herbal products to support our solar panel campaign. Every scholar at our school has a fundraising packet--if you are interested in soaps, sprays, lotions, mists, etc., please ask one of our scholars how you can contribute in the fundraiser! And these make great gifts--stock up for the holidays!
August 14, 2018: We are so appreciative of the donations and contributions that have come in so far. We're getting there! Please keep the donations coming so we can get to our $15k fundraising goal by October 31!
July 19, 2018: Our two science teachers, Sarah Judy and Brittany White, just completed two days of solar energy professional development with The Center for Energy Education (C4EE). These two educators are psyched about our school going solar!
June 18, 2018: We met today with NC Greenpower's engineer, J.R. Whitley, and representatives from the Town of Tarboro and Electricities to do a site analysis. We've found a great location for our solar panel that will provide both SHADE and save ENERGY! We're going to position the panel as an awning over the entrance to our main lobby (by our front office). Yes, that means students will actually walk UNDER our panel on their way into the building! Cool, huh?
