Recycling Contest at Chavez Middle School

Cesar Chavez Y.E.P. organized a Recycling Contest for the whole school from Nov.30- Jan.19 with the purpose of making a difference in the community. Students decided to start a recycling contest in which all 4th period classes would compete against each other to see who could bring in the most bags of cans and bottles to win a pizza party hosted by Y.E.P. There was very supportive staff involved to assist with incentives for a successful event.  Mrs. Leache's in Rm. 3 won the contest by collecting 18 large garbage bags of recyclables. With the whole school pitching in, Y.E.P. successfully raised $130.00. The project successfully launched an ongoing recycling program on campus and is helping motivate a positive transformation of how students and staff feel about the campus.
