Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP) and the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) are honoring two Rhode Island schools that were recently verified as Northeast Collaborative for High Performance Schools (NE CHPS): Claiborne Pell Elementary School in Newport, and Archie R. Cole Middle School in East Greenwich.
At the October 7, 2013 Meeting, the Rhode Island Board of Education will commend the Newport Public Schools for achieving “Green” school verification with the Claiborne Pell Elementary School. This School has undergone rigorous review according to the School Construction Regulations adopted by the Board of Regents in 2007 and has been verified by the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) as a Green School built in accordance with the Northeast Collaborative for High Performance Schools (NECHPS) protocol. Green Schools are energy efficient, environmentally friendly, healthy, and more productive learning environments.
The Newport Family and Child Opportunity Zone will be offering licensed school-age childcare daily after school at the Pell School for students in Kindergarten through grade four.
NPS is committed to providing high quality, fresh and nutritious foods that promote the overall healthfulness of the children who attend our schools. We are committed to and invest in our community by providing locallygrown foods and supporting our Rhode Island farmers. We are proud to have Chartwells as our food service providers whose aim is in line with our goals. Please drop in for lunch with your child and see for yourself!
