  1. check out the winning video! It is amazing! The kids speaking articulately, the staff (especially the custodian) doing an amazing job saying why Rosa Parks needs the money and how they'll use it, and a creative, interesting format. Go Rosa Parks!

  2. how do you find the video? I went to all the links listed but it was just news clips. I'm excited b/c I listed this as #2 on my list of 7. It seems to be getting better and better!

  3. If the links don't work, google "ecozone media green my school winner" and you will get to the video.

  4. Hi Anonymous 8:47pm. I am a parent of a 1st grader at Rosa Parks JBBP. And you are correct, the school is continuing to get better and better. We are very happy with the school. If you want a parent to talk with, you can call me at 415-706-3016. I would be happy to answer any questions!

  5. Here is the link to the video:

    NOTE: the video only resides on the contest (Ecozone) website, so you have to go to the Green My School contest website to view the video. You have to scroll down to the Rosa Parks Elementary video winning entry; it is not a direct link to the video.
