The U.S. Department of Education is honoring UWSP’s Child Learning and Care Center with its Green Ribbon Schools award.
The award recognizes the Helen R. Godfrey Center for its achievements in reducing its carbon footprint, promoting the wellness of students and staff, and providing environmental education.
“We just do a lot of environmentally conscious things within our center. A lot of our programming is also done throughout the community. Last Friday we took our children to Schmeekle and we spent the entire morning there. We did a picnic and we talked a lot about what Schmeekle is and why it’s important and just about the impact that we have on the environment,” said Educational Assistant Teacher Hannah Juza.
