9 Queen Anne’s public schools recertified as Green Schools

CENTREVILLE — Nine Queen Anne’s County public schools have recertified as Maryland Association of Environmental and Outdoor Education Green Schools, led by Stevensville Middle School achieving a Sustainable School level.

The announcement was made on Earth Day — Monday, April 22.

Joining Stevensville Middle School as recertified Green Schools for 2024 are: Church Hill, Matapeake and Sudlersville elementary schools; Centreville, Matapeake and Sudlersville middle schools; and Queen Anne’s County and Kent Island high schools.

A news release states, “The Green Schools initiative offers QACPS a framework through which to showcase its commitment to environmental literacy and efforts to foster student engagement with interdisciplinary subjects and their students’ immediate surroundings. Greening their school environments contributes to QACPS’s sustainability objectives and has played a significant role in their efforts to cut costs, promote health, and establish performance-enhancing sustainability practices.”

The recent recertifications coincide with the completion of Queen Anne’s County Public Schools’ outdoor classrooms across all eight elementary schools and alongside the notable achievement of the U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon District Award.

QACPS’ teachers and students will be recognized at the 25th annual Maryland Green Schools Youth Summit on May 30 at Sandy Point State Park.
