VACDES Recycling Project

VACDES Recycling Project:
VACDES students collected materials for recycling last week. Students were collecting trash and recyclable materials during each lunch block all week.  Students were cleaning, weighing, and recording the data in STREAM class with Mrs. Constatino.  101 lbs of plastic waste was collected. The art teacher, Mrs. Fabin took the recyclable materials and made an under water recycling scene to display all the materials that could be recycled. Check out the fabulous art work! The recycling materials will be used on an Art Fair night where students and parents will be making a "make and take" project of their choice.  Students at VACDES are coming up with ideas to help reduce the amount of waste in the cafeteria.
