Voya Financial (rebranded ING US) awarded GREEN Charter School $2,000 to help support GREEN's "Sustainability is Smart" Project through the Voya Unsung Heroes Program. This project supports an outdoor garden that will incorporate the use of solar energy, raising of laying hens, and the care of a fish pond. "Sustainability is Smart" will build awareness and educate the importance of environmental sustainability to the students and community of GREEN Charter School.
Mrs. Jodi Isaacs' and Mrs. Chi Moreno's innovative teaching idea, "Sustainability is Smart" supports the mission of GREEN Charter in improving Science and Sustainability learning opportunities for students. This initiative will aid in GREEN Charter's certification in becoming a South Carolina Green Steps School.
