One of the many things that I love about Bacich is that we are truly a community school. Without a town center for families to gather, Bacich often serves this purpose. If you wonder what I mean, simply stop by our campus during after school hours or on a weekend. You’ll see a buzz of activities ranging from baseball games, family picnics, bicycle riding, pick-up basketball games or parents sitting in the sun watching their children on the playground equipment. We welcome all our neighbors in the Kentfield/Greenbrae community and invite you to enjoy our school during after school hours. We only ask that everyone clean up after themselves and their pets.
We have made great strides in our efforts to be a green school where recycling and composting come naturally to our students and our staff. We try to be mindful about tossing only the minimum into our landfill containers. Each classroom is equipped with three small containers for this purpose, and our students are responsible for emptying them regularly. We have multiple three-tiered bins on our campus where composting, recycling, and landfill can be discarded easily. We have a student Green Team that supports all students in understanding this process.
Last month, Bacich was recognized for our efforts in being a Zero Waste School. Three fourth students and our Green Team teacher leader, Ms. Meagher, joined me and Ms. Bozeman at Marin County Office of Education to be recognized for the work, which our school has done over the past few years. We received a $500.00 certification award to further our Zero Waste program and to continue to help educate our young students about the importance of being good stewards of our community and of our planet.
We hope that if you enjoy our beautiful campus during after school hours, you will partner with us to keep our school clean and green!
