November 15 marked both America Recycles Day, a nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling, and the start of the RCDS recycle challenge! The goal of the challenge is to ensure all divisions are recycling properly under the new single stream guidelines. Throughout the challenge, students will be collecting data on recycling bins around the school. The winning division will be announced at the end of the challenge before Winter Break.
To help spread the word, members of the Upper School Environmental Club and Garden Club read a story to the Pre-K students about the importance of recycling and played the "wheel of trash" game that helps students understand and determine which items go into the trash and which go into the recycling.
