Upon arrival at Twin Oaks Middle School last week to present their SEE Award, I found several staff members reclining on the floor of the Gold gym. They were actually making a formation of human letters to spell out LAKERS for a project they are working on promoting school pride and spirit. It was an entertaining process to observe. Once completed, the staff then gathered for their meeting.
At the time of the staff meeting, head custodian Bob had already left for the day so his assistant Terry accepted the award on behalf of the students and staff at Twin Oaks. TOMS received recognition for Outstanding Achievement in Energy Use Reduction for 2010.
Thank you, Twin Oaks for doing a great job at saving energy in your building and saving money for the school district! And as you've heard me say before, it's not just about saving energy and money. It's also about being good stewards of our natural resources and eco-conscious keepers of the earth, the world our students in ISD 719 will be growing up in for many years to come.
