CCMS Student CouncilIn January 2018, Christopher Columbus Middle School put together a team of staff and students with the intention of acquiring a $10,000 grant sponsored by Sustainable Jersey for Schools and the PSEG Foundation.  These grants are intended to help school districts and schools make progress toward a sustainable future. We are proud to report that our school successfully attained a grant award in the amount of $10,000.  Funds from this grant have been used for the purchase and installation of nine Elkay ezH2O Water Bottle Filling Stations throughout our building.  These stations, equipped with water filtration and refrigeration, will ensure access to clean, safe drinking water our entire learning community for decades to come. The installation of these Elkay ezH2O Water Bottle Filling Stations was made possible by a $10,000 Sustainable Jersey for Schools grant funded by the PSEG Foundation.  For more information on Sustainable Jersey for Schools, please visit www.sustainablejersey.com/grants-resources  | Memo to Families
