Wingate Goes Green
Jean Greenwalt and Josephine Maness, both third grade teachers at Wingate, have launched The Recycling Team. This is a team of third, fourth, and fifth grade students who are committed to making the environment and Wingate Elementary a healthier and more beautiful place to live and attend school.
Students worked together with classroom teachers to establish a central location for their recycling containers, as well as the importance and responsibility we have as citizens to take care of our environment.
The Recycling Team collects recycling on Fridays from 9:00 â€“ 9:30. The Team circulates throughout the building to transfer each recycling container into the large school containers that have been provided. Keep up the great work, Wildcats!
