Wil-Hi Named National Green Ribbon School

Willamette's annual community Recycling Round-up is one of the many reasons why WHS has been named a National Green Ribbon School.

Willamette’s annual community Recycling Round-up is one of the many reasons why WHS has been named a National Green Ribbon School.

Willamette High School is one of 48 schools across the country to receive recognition as a 2014 National Green Ribbon School.

The honor, announced today by the U.S. Department of Education, is for the school’s efforts to improve the health and wellness of its students and staff, reduce environmental impacts, and provide environmental and sustainability education.

WHS recycles more than 2,000 pounds of material every week, uses paper towels that are EPA certified 85 percent post-consumer waste, is part of the city’s Love Food Not Waste composting program, uses more than two dozen large, raised garden beds that serve as skills training for students, and much more.

Willamette representatives will be invited to Washington, D.C. this summer to receive recognition as a National Green Ribbon School.

Bring your household items to Willamette on this Saturday, April 19th from 8:00 to 2:00.

Here’s a list of what can and cannot be accepted.

Willamette has been named the winner of Oregon’s Sustainable School Award and this community event is one reason why.

Your junk is treasure to the folks at NextStep Recycling and St. Vincent de Paul, which will gladly reuse or recycle everything gathered by Wil-Hi’s National Honor Society students.

There’s no turning back now. Ground breaking has taken place for the new Willamette Science building, and demolition on the old front office building is about to begin.

Take a look at the new building’s design.

It will become a point of pride for the community and create a landmark entrance to the Willamette campus.

Not only will it be the first LEED certified K-12 building in the Willamette Valley, the new Science building will include state of the art classrooms, a horseshoe-shaped lecture hall, and a rooftop 40KW array of solar panels. Phase 2 of the project will replace the current science classrooms with a new front office.
