Mary Lin students celebrated America Recycles Day on November 15th by participating in Waste Free Wednesday during lunch. We encouraged parents to send in lunch without any disposable products. Parents volunteered to oversee lunch shifts and help the kids sort their waste/recyclables. We talked about food waste and many of the kids either finished their lunches or brought the rest home. There is a lot of waste with cafeteria food. The students were excited and many were proud to show off their waste free lunches and learn more about recycling.
Thanks to Julie Roseman, Dirk Lamb and the many parent volunteers who helped make this special day happen for Mary Lin Elementary and our planet.
