South Prairie is participating in a short-term recycling project collecting plastic grocery bags and Styrofoam. When we fill the two "Super Bags," we can earn a raised bed for our school that is made out of recycled materials. The intent of this project is not to promote the use of plastic for the sake of getting a free garden bed. We are hoping to spread awareness about how much plastic materials we as consumers throw in the trash and to show our students that there are many ways to be environmentally friendly. Notices were sent home this week with more information.
