Waste Pro Recycling Truck Visits SPARK!

Thank you to Yvonne Douglas of the APS Facilities Department for sending the Waste Pro Recycling truck out to visit our school! The classes that correctly sorted their trash for the SPARK Recycles Challenge last week were invited to come see the truck. Students learned about where their recyclables go after they put them in their classroom recycling bins. They also got to meet their driver and see the truck in action!

The winning classes were:

1st Place – Ms. Bryant’s Class
2nd Place – Ms. White and Mr. Smiley’s Class
3rd Place – Ms. M, Ms. Perry, Ms. Lockwood, and Ms. Thurman’s Class

America Recycles Day!

Leading up to America Recycles Day on November 15, SPARK classes participated in the Georgia Read for Recycling Week and the SPARK Recycles Challenge!

America-Recycles-Day2

Georgia Reading for Recycling Week!

Throughout the week of November 8-15, SPARK students participated in Georgia’s “Reading for Recycling” week (sponsored by the Georgia Recycling Coalition). Any student that turned in a reading log showing 5 books that they read about either recycling or composting, were entered into a drawing to receive a $50 gift card to Barnes and Noble.

See below for our outstanding students and classes for our 2014 campaign! We’re still waiting to hear back from the Georgia Recycling Coalition on the winners of the $50 Barnes and Noble gift card!
