My Grades of Green Story by Johanna James.
I am truly proud of our Grades of Green Team. It has been a great educational experience for our students to be mindful of the importance to recycle and dispose of waste properly. Students making conscious decisions to dispose their waste appropriately has actually helped with another problem… birds! We’ve had a seagull issue for years. Now that very little food is left on tables and the waste is primarily concentrated in several areas the birds are not really much of an issue now.
