Kelly Creek Elementary:
Since 1997 we have been
An Oregon Premiere

We became an Oregon Green School in 1995.
By then our Aardvarks program was thriving!
In 1997, we re-certified at the highest level
to become a Premier Oregon Green School.
We were the first Premier Green School
and the longest running without expiring.

The Kelly Creek Aardvarks Recycling Team started shortly after the school opened in 1993.  We became an Oregon Green School in 1995.  By then our program was thriving and we skipped the first level.  In 1997 we re-certified at the highest level to be a Premier Oregon Green School. We were the first Premier Green School and the longest running without expiring.

There are many requirements to being part of this organization.  We have to prove sustainability and show that we share our progress with community.  The application is lengthy and difficult.  We are required to do a trash audit once a year to see exactly what we are recycling and throwing away.
