All of us at Smile believe that our actions can reverse global warming and build a healthier and more sustainable world.
We also believe that it is our responsibility as educators to understand the world your children will inherit and prepare them for it as best we possibly can.
In this vein, we have a firm commitment to sustainable practices, both as a school and as individuals.
In everything we do, everything we produce and everything we purchase, we ask ourselves if we are making a decision that supports the most sustainable possible outcomes.
Promote sustainability so that as you make your own choices each day, you know what to look for.
