Column: Raising awareness about sustainability at Saltonstall School


Put in a simple poem, sustainability can be described this way:

Sustain Ability

When you think about the earth

And you care to take a stand,

If you consider folks around you

As you walk upon this land

In a conscious give and take,

It’s a system, no mistake!

— A commitment and a promise

To beauty, food and light.

It takes action every day

To keep our future bright.


Julie Carter is principal of Saltonstall School. This is one in a series of columns from the Community Advisory Board for the Salem schools.
