Blessed Sacrament Catholic School achieved Green School Platinum Certification, awarded by the Utah Society for Environmental Education (USEE), through the Utah Green School initiative. USEE awards green school status to schools demonstrating sustainability in four categories: sustainable practices, sustainable facilities, environmental education, and community involvement. The Blessed Sacrament Catholic School Green Team leaders compiled a portfolio illustrating our green-school sustainable practices. Our winning portfolio included eight projects meeting all four required categories.
The submitted projects illustrate our awareness in action and the ways in which reducing consumption can positively impact our world both physically and spiritually. Blessed Sacrament Catholic School’s environmental practices are based on Catholic teaching and the understanding of how we respond to God’s call in caring for all creation. As Pope Francis writes in Laudato Si, “Everyone shares our common home.”
The Green Team, comprised of parent volunteers, students, faculty, and staff, promotes school-wide sustainable practices, which enhance student health and learning while conserving our natural resources and empowering students to become stewards of the future.
