Hall Fletcher Elementary, Asheville, NC
NC Green School of Quality, 2013-present
Lead Teacher: Michele Corral
Hall Fletcher Elementary (HFE) is a caring academic community that strives to produce students who are curious and lifelong stewards of the earth. Everyday in the school one can find evidence of students and staff participating in green activities from utilizing the commercial composting service, recycling, gardening and much more. Hall Fletcher is a proud producer of budding environmentalists. Hall Fletcher also has many avenues for outdoor education. Every week each Hall Fletcher student participates in a Garden Class. They manage the large outdoor garden containing several beds, compost bins and greenhouse. A couple of years ago Hall Fletcher’s Green Team was awarded an energy education grant from Progress Energy and the ACS Foundation to create a StoryWalk on the campus where students can read energy conservation themed books and take a hike at the same time.
