Great Schools Clean Streams 2017

Sixteen schools will win funds to use for campus projects and supplies! Take the Great Schools Clean Streams pledge to help you school claim its share!

A Message from Wendy Turner, 2017 Delaware Teacher of the Year

As a teacher, I work with young minds to help them grow up to become responsible men and women. Along with my fellow teachers, we hope that the classroom lessons we teach will be a solid foundation for the countless life lessons waiting for them after graduation.

That’s why I’m proud to support the Great Schools Clean Streams campaign, which enlists students, families and our entire community in an opportunity to be good citizens and environmental stewards.
