James Stelter, CEO of Footprint Earth Foundation says, "We are excited about this opportunity.  This is the perfect marriage.  Footprint Earth Foundation's mission to 'plant the seeds of commonsense sustainability' matches well with River Grove's mission to 'utilize the natural resources . . . as a foundation for the study of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, physical education, art, and other curriculum subjects."

The goals of this partnership are:

Kristina Smitten, Board Chair of River Grove Elementary says, "This is a unique opportunity for our students and our community. The school uses place-based and project-based learning, and this partnership will provide our students the opportunity to contemplate choices around sustainability, evaluate results of actions, and then to share their learning with the community. We look forward to our community of learners working with Footprint Earth Foundation."

In August, River Grove Elementary opened its doors for the first time to 165 new students in kindergarten through sixth grade.  These students will help carve the future of River Grove Elementary.
