In recent years Spalding has been on a mission to have our faculty, staff, students and campus thinking “green”.  In religion classes our students learn that they are stewards of God’s Earth and with this comes a great responsibility to our environment. 

Listed below are some of the MANY ways we bring our green initiative to life:

  • In 2011 we introduced Single Stream Recycling on campus

  • To reduce our carbon footprint our goal is for Spalding to be a “No Idle Zone”, meaning that cars that aren’t moving should have their engines turned off at all times.  *Please be considerate of this when coming to and from campus.

  • In 2012 we implemented Haiku – an online learning system that has significantly decreased our paper usage and waste

  • All students are encouraged to pledge to lead a “greener” life and add their name to our Green Tree 

  • We host an annual E-Cycling event where members of the community are invited to drop off their used and unused electronics

  • All teachers support the initiative by educating students about the environment in at least one lesson plan throughout the year
