I am so proud to announce that our school was 1st place in the ReNew Our Schools Energy Saving Competition sponsored by Black Hills Energy and the Center for ReSource Conservation. Through our families’ support by returning home energy pledges, the students and staff conserving energy at school, our janitors doing some of their work in the dark, and all of the other energy actions completed by our students, including an energy audit, school video, and poster contest, we earned our school $18,000 for energy saving projects. We will be working with the Center for ReSource Conservation to identify the energy saving measures that will take place at Heroes. We would like to thank the leadership of our 8th grade science teacher, Ms. Sandoval, and our J-ROTC program cadets for serving as our Electric Energy Team!
