Welcome to Dimensions Green

 
“Hi I’m Danny the mascot of Dimensions of Learning Academy and I’m sporting green to help explain our green charter school program, the Green Initiative to you.  The Dimensions Green Initiative website offers you the opportunity to understand our sustainable programs and support us in environmental education and stewardship. 

Our Green Initiative includes environmental education, environmental enrichment opportunities, Green Adult volunteers, GrIn(Green Kids), facilities environmental operations guidelines, energy and MSW management, a managed website, and so much more that is “green” at our school!

This website includes our Green Calendar, which includes eco-events that Dimensions showcases and local community events.  We included an Earth Hour page and our Whazzup? for keeping abreast on local events with a “green” theme in our area.  There are also Photos for your to see.  The site is updated with videos, information and student contributions to environmental awareness.  

Contact Lynn Landre at llandre@kusd.edu for more information about the Dimensions Green Initiative or to volunteer to support the cause!”http://dol.kusd.edu/Green_Calendar.htmlEarth_Hour.htmlEarth_Hour.htmlWhazzup.htmlAlbums/Albums.htmlArchives/Archives.htmlArchives/Archives.htmlmailto:llandre@kusd.edushapeimage_2_link_0shapeimage_2_link_1shapeimage_2_link_2shapeimage_2_link_3shapeimage_2_link_4shapeimage_2_link_5shapeimage_2_link_6shapeimage_2_link_7shapeimage_2_link_8
