Queen Creek Unified Named Champion of Energy Efficiency

Salt River Project (SRP) has named the Queen Creek Unified School District (QCUSD) a Champion of Energy Efficiency.  SRP awarded QCUSD the title based on the school district’s energy savings associated with the SRP program the district participated in during the last fiscal year. Energy savings in QCUSD came from retrofitting existing facilities as well as the energy-efficient designs embedded throughout QCUSD’s newest schools, Eastmark High School and Silver Valley Elementary. The total energy savings or percentage of annual energy savings from the measures QCUSD implemented were among the highest of comparable businesses. Please see the full press release for more information.

On Tuesday, August 20, the cafeteria and learning stairs of Eastmark High School were packed with more than 100 people for the first Business Partner Breakfast of the 2019-20 school year.

In attendance were governing board members, Queen Creek Vice Mayor Robin Benning, Mesa Mayor John Giles, local business leaders, realtors, and several community members. Attendees enjoyed a breakfast catered by the QCUSD Child Nutrition Department followed by the first public performance of the EHS Fight Song played by the Firebird Marching Band under the instruction of Mr. Nathan Johnston. 

Business partners then transitioned to the learning stairs where they learned about the EHS Career Path Academies as well as a new tool soon to be used in QCUSD called 'Career Match'. This tool is designed to partner community members and businesses with teachers looking for industry professionals to be guest speakers, take part in a career day event, host a field trip, and/or mentor students.

Thank you to all who attended. Effective partnerships help our students succeed!
