MIDDLETOWN – A local school received a check for $10,000 on Friday that will assist it with becoming more green and sustainable.


Pacific Gas & Electric Co. awarded the Lake County International Charter School the grant as part of its Bright Ideas Grant, as Lake County News reported earlier this month.


Executive assistant Laura Stalker said the grant will provide “a lot more tools to work with” for the school.


Plans include building a solar-powered green house for native plants, which the school will sell. The school also plans to work on local watershed issues, with opportunities for the school's 100 kindergarten through eighth grade students to get their hands dirty in the process.


The new grant also will lay the foundation for a future “seed to table” program where the children will help grow and cook some of their own foods.


School Director Karl Reichman said teacher training will be one of the tools the grant will help bring to the school.
