The Recyclers of OES are comprised of fifth graders who are in Mrs. Watson’s Read 180 class. Their task is to collect mixed office paper from around the school to recycle. This project based learning activity allows the students to understand the importance of recycling and the rules for recycling office paper. It also gives them pride in knowing that they are helping the custodial staff and the environment by reducing the amount of paper that is going into the landfill.
We work in cooperation with the Dorchester County Recycling and want to thank them for donating the recycling bins to each classroom. This project allows us to reduce the amount of waste taken from our school each day.
