 Fifth grade makes the world a better place by encouraging us all to recycle!

Last year, Ms. Gregory, started the recycling project.  Ms. Bertholf, the new fifth grade teacher, asked this years fifth grade class if they would like to continue the project. They responded with an enthusiastic “YES!!” So the students got to work and made recycling boxes for each classroom. The boxes get filled up each week, and on Friday afternoons, the fifth graders come around and collect all of the recyclable material from the boxes. Then they take it to the large recycling bin, located on the playground, and the city comes and collects it.

When asked, the fifth grade student Teresa Sandborn stated the goal of their project is ” To make the world a better place.”  Autumn Donald added, “Also, to get all of the teachers to recycle.” Jack Graven stated, ” The project is about designing card board boxes for the teachers to keep their recyclables in.”

Fifth Grade students answering questions.

When asked what their favorite part of the project is most students said they enjoyed collecting the boxes.  Jack Graven said his favorite part was” Giving the boxes we designed to the teachers.” All of the students agreed that the project is important to protecting the environment.

    I am impressed with this project and the student’s enthusiasm to participate! I feel that this is a great way to make them aware of conservation and eliminate waste in our society.

    Good job Ms Bertholf!
