Trinity School is committed to improving the health and sustainability of our school community. We strive to promote environmental awareness and to reduce our carbon footprint in the operation of the school. To these ends, we promote opportunities and implement activities that demonstrate our appreciation of, and commitment to, preserving the earth's environment. We encourage and teach our students to be good stewards of the earth by becoming advocates for the earth's environment on campus and in the surrounding community.
Essentially, our carbon footprint is a measure of the effect of our activities on the environment, including climate change. An organization that has embraced the concept of "going green" is committed to reducing the negative impact of its activities on the environment.

At Trinity we understand the importance of teaching our children about the environment and our impact on it. Classroom instruction is a critical tool in promoting respect for the earth and living things. Our curriculum includes study of such topics as the Earth, Energy, Living Things and Ecosystems. Each year students and teachers engage in a variety of activities on Earth Day that complement our going green efforts.
The outdoor classroom permits teachers to draw from the rich environment just outside our buildings and teach students about the environment in and with the environment.
With the construction of Trinity's first outdoor classroom, we signal our commitment to making environmental consciousness and conservation integral parts of our curriculum.
If you are a Trinity parent, supporting and encouraging Trinity and its students in their going green efforts is a great start. In addition, we encourage each member of the Trinity family to adopt green practices at work and at home.
