Highcroft Ridge Elementary

An EcoBuds group meets to plan their environmental project.



Highcroft Ridge Elementary is a public school in the Parkway District. Over 30% of students are FRPL, have limited English proficiency, and/or have learning disabilities. In2017-2018, the Highcroft Ridge Elementary Family Groups voted to have "the environmment" as their topic and theme for the year. The first year was all about "eco-cation", including brainstorming ideas for projects for an April 2017 half day Enviromental Day. The second year students were focused on understanding, calculating and reducing the school's carbon footprint.
