New Salem Recycles
As groups across America celebrated America Recycles Day on November 15th, New Salem joined in by sponsoring “New Salem Recycles” days on November 12-14th. The Green Team, our environmental club, promoted recycling both at home and school. During this drive, sixty- five students brought in 1652 plastic grocery bags, 136 ink cartridges, 10 cell phones and 13 glue sticks. They also recycled several hundred plastic bottles and aluminum cans. Students learned how to become an informed citizen when taking care of the environment.
