  • This year, East Elementary students and staff are involved in a school-wide effort to decrease the number of items that go in the trash, and increase the number of items that can be recycled.
    Every classroom has Recycle Monitors who make sure that items placed in the bins are permitted and record how many times the bin is filled each month. Recording sheets are turned in at the end of each month to determine who has recycled the most. The top three monthly winners are celebrated by proudly displaying a banner on their door, having their photo on the recycling bulletin board and choosing a PBS reward.
    In addition, East has launched a fundraising program through The Funding Factory. East is able to earn money for the school by recycling inkjet cartridges, toner cartridges, iPods/MP3 players, digital cameras, cellphones, GPS devices and more. Most importantly, they are keeping unnecessary items out of the landfills!
