About Us

Hermosa Beach’s Grades of Green Team is part of the global Grades of Green community. Our HB Team is focused on inspiring and empowering students in the Hermosa Beach School District to care for the environment. We do this by training parent volunteers and providing lesson materials so every volunteer docent is fully prepared to enter the classroom and lead an exciting Grades of Green eco-lesson.

Hermosa Beach’s Grades of Green Team is taking on Grades of Green’s Trash Free Lunches Activity with a goal to encourage students to reduce their ecological footprint, develop tools for making “greener” choices, and lead school-wide Grades of Green Activities that help improve our campus.

In addition to providing two classroom lessons, Hermosa Beach’s Grades of Green Team hosts assemblies for the school, like Environmental Defenders Rock Concert. We also lead campus-wide Earth Week Activities where students conduct Grades of Green’s Energy Challenge, Walk to School Activity, and Trash Free Lunches.
