ST JOHN's CATHOLIC SCHOOL- The students in Grade 5/6 declared Operation: Save the Earth. They challenge the other classes to see who can recycle and compost
the most. Each class received a compost bucket and a recycling bin. The class who has the least garbage by the end of the month will receive a prize. The money that the school receives from the green committee will be used to support this prize, as well as something for the entire school for its participation in this endeavor.
Reminder: The schools will be rewarded $100 at the end of the month for participating during an assembly. The schools and any businesses have be recognized in our local newspaper.
Have we achieves a minimum of 350 participants for the event? Are habits changing for a safer, cleaner earth?
