Wolfsville Elementary School

Certified 2011, 2018, 2022

Advisor: Rebecca Butler

Wolfsville is a small school nestled just below the Appalachian Trail in northwest Frederick County. Students are greatly supported in their green efforts by local Wolfsville community members. Partnerships with local businesses and national organizations provide excellent programming, instruction, and learning opportunities for students. 


At every grade level, students at Wolfsville Elementary engage in learning about the environment and their relationship to the Earth. Students use a variety of learning strategies, technology and hands-on experiences to support learning. Most notably, students serve the community, school, and Earth through a variety of larger service projects that will have lasting implications well beyond their graduation. 


Both primary and intermediate students learn the global impact of pollution and how to be better stewards of the environment. Learning is put into practice as students evaluate lunch containers and recyclable materials; and students maintain and use a beautiful schoolyard habitat.
