Cindy Dent
Talbott Elementary
Widefield, COUSA

We decorated 100 bags!

About our project: Our fifth graders just finished making and studying ecocolumns of terraria and aquaria... this project was a great opportunity for them to share their knowledge about the environment with our community. Younger students included messages and pictures about recycling and keeping our planet clean for the future.

Michelle Hewitt
Morris Primary School/Girl Scout troop 572

We decorated 49 bags!

About our project: We found this project only two weeks before Earth Day. Nevertheless, some of our teachers thought this was a great idea and chose to participate in the program. Next year, the Girl Scouts are planning on distributing bags earlier to hopefully give the teachers more time to work it into thier schedules.

LuAnn Lowrey
C.A. French Elementary
Colorado Springs, COUSA

We decorated 610 bags!

About our project: Billie Olin, who is the P.E. teacher at French, has had a recycling club with 4th, 5th, and 6th graders participating for the last 7 years. Each week, the kids collect recycled paper from the classrooms. They learn about the recycling process as well as do something good for their community. The kids decided that this year they would like to do something schoolwide before our "Earth Day" assembly to make all the students more aware of recycling. So, in each of Mrs. Olin's P.E. classes, she taught a mini lesson on the subject and urged the kids to participate in decorating the Albertson bags to then be use by the store on Earth Day. All of the kids in the school took alot of pride in decorating their bags and we are proud to say that we got 100% participation. Our hats are off to Mrs. Olin and her "Wecycle" kids.
