    Maryland Green School Certification: On March 17th, the Environmental Committee submitted an application to the Maryland Association of Environmental and Outdoor Education to become a Certified Green School.  We are happy to announce that with the hard work on the part of your students and their teachers, Charlestown is now a Certified Green School!
