KJMS Recognized as DWR's Virginia Naturally School
DWR RECOGNIZES SCHOOLS FOR THE VIRGINIA NATURALLY SCHOOLS RECOGNITION PROGRAM
RICHMOND - DWR’s Virginia Naturally Schools is the official environmental education school recognition program of the Commonwealth. The goal of the program is to recognize those exemplary efforts undertaken by Virginia schools to increase the environmental awareness and stewardship of its students. The schools’ environmental efforts also support the Profile of a Virginia Graduate through the development of the students’ Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Creative Thinking and Civic Responsibility.
After a two year hiatus, the recognition program returned and recognized thirty-six schools for their efforts during the 2021-22 school year. Seventeen schools were recognized for the first time since the recognition program’s inception in 2000 and the remaining schools received repeated recognition for their continued progression. Three schools earned their 21st year of recognition!
