The Sprint to Savings has begun at Phelps ACEHS! Amber Wirth and Kate Renner from HKS, Steve Wohlschlegel from the Integral Group and Jamie Donovan from DGS attended Mr. Vrooman’s AP Environmental Science class on Wednesday, February 5th to develop innovative ideas to encourage teachers and students to save energy at Phelps. The end goal of the program is to save energy, and in turn, save money for the DC Public School System. Sprint to Savings is a program to reduce energy usage at participating schools by 5 – 10% over the course of just three weeks. The prize for reducing energy by 10% is $10,000! The official start date for the Sprint to Savings is on Monday, February 10th!
