Green Ambassadors

Each year two new Green Ambassadors are elected or appointed in every class. The Green Ambassador will be responsible for recycling in the classroom, energy use in the classroom, making sure lights are turned off when not needed, and the reuse of materials. The Green Ambassadors also provide green tips during Monday morning announcements. The green tips will be tips that our students can use in school and at home to help our earth.

Our South School garden which was planted last spring by the Green Ambassadors has been a real success!
Green Ambassadors will spend time harvesting all the fruits and vegetables that were planted in the spring. The Fall Ambassadors will be planting in late October or early November.
Everyone at South is so excited with our new garden fence built by our wonderful volunteers on Fathers & Friends Day! Many thanks for their hard work!

Our schools have received 26 California Distinguished School Awards, 7 National Blue Ribbon Awards, and 29 Kent Awards for Innovative Programs. Our success is due to high quality staff, committed and involved families and community members, a supportive Board, a cohesive vision, and a strong commitment to excellence.

More than two decades of research findings are unequivocal: the most important aspect of a school in terms of student learning is teacher quality, and our teachers are among the best!

Students in K-2 have access to a reading specialist. 3rd-5th grade students participate in our Innovation Labs where they create and explore. K-5 students participate in music classes, and 4th-8th grade students have access to instrument instruction. Spanish instruction begins in 4th grade, and Mandarin is offered in our middle school. All of our schools have a dedicated counselor, teacher librarian, physical educator, and more!

Through the generosity of donors, the Hillsborough Schools Foundation pledged $3.5 million to our schools for this school year. Last year's Fund-A-Need raised funds for traffic and safety. Thank you!
