Coles Elementary Receives Green Ribbon Schools Award from U.S. Department of Education
On June 3, 2015, Coles Elementary representatives Ramona Richardson, Kathryn Forgas, and Jennifer Rokasky (PWCS Energy Education Coordinator) traveled to the U.S Department of Commerce in Washington D.C to receive the Green Ribbon Schools Award with keynote, U.S Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, and meet Senator Mark Warner.  A reception was held in the Dirksen Senate Office Building. 
It was energizing to hear, talk to, and see how schools are integrating efforts to reduce environmental impact and utility costs, promote better health, integrate STEM activities into daily instruction, and ensure effective environmental education, including civics and green career pathways.  We feel honored to be in an esteemed category with only 58 other schools across the nation.

Coles is a 2015 U.S Department of Education Green Ribbon School
This is a such a great honor and demonstrates our commitment to the Coles Elementary Vision of being environmentally minded thinkers where real-world problems are explored and success is celebrated!  Way to go, Coles' students, staff, and community!

This award acknowledges our school's commitment to sustainable practices. The areas encompassed by the award include reduced environmental impact and costs, improved health and wellness, and effective environmental education. We commend your school for its leadership in environmental stewardship, health, and sustainability and for inspiring your entire school community to aim high. You are representative of promising practices to improve achievement and equity, not only for aspiring green schools but for all schools
