The Second Grade began a drive to recycle juice pouches and Nabisco cookie wrappers in conjunction with an organization called Terracycle. For each item recycled, Terracycle will donate money to a charity. Terracylce also make bags, school supplies, and other assorted goodies with the recycled pouches and wrappers. The children decorated collection boxes and placed them in the Second Grade parlor. So far they have collected many items. They will continue to collect and mail in the recyclables through the end of the school year and next year as well! The Second Graders are excited to be saving the Earth and helping people in need at the same time!
