William C. Abney Academy


Project Description:
Each classroom was provided with a paper recycling bin. Previously, the school had no paper recycling system, so most of it was thrown away. Classroom teachers introduced the program with lessons on taking care of the earth. The long-term goal of this project is for students to take steps towards increased civic responsibility and stewardship.

Fostering Lifelong Stewardship:
Students now better understand recycling and items that can and should be recycled. Students also learned about the recycling system for paper and how paper can be recycled and created into more paper.
