Recycling at Memorial School: a Student Initiative

I had the pleasure of working with three incredible third graders, Olivia Bunten, Lilly Quinn and Lily Padilla this past week! They were concerned that we did not recycle water bottles in the cafe during lunches and wanted to put together a recycling program. They wrote very persuasive letters and requested a meeting with me and Mr. Mason, school head custodian, to put a plan in action.  Sometimes, the best solution is to let students lead the charge! Next, our fifth grade school council got involved and coordinated signs and trainings for each lunch block. I am so proud of the coordinated efforts of staff, Mr. Rabazzi and Mrs. Alper, school council teacher leaders, Mr. Mason and our talented students who care about Memorial School and impact recycling can have on our community.  There will be two garbage containers with round holes for water bottles in the cafe. Please remind your child to put their water bottles in these containers so the custodial staff can dispose of them properly. Thank you!
