May 12, 2017

In addition to recycling in the cafeteria, each classroom is recycling as well. The students attended an assembly where they learned about the importance of recycling and what items they can put in the blue recycling bins. Volunteers were called up to sort through trash and find all of the recyclable items. By working together KLR students are hoping to make a significant impact in the amount of garbage sent out in Monticello and the entire world.
