We at Harrison are all about going green! We have had a green team in place now for 5 years. It is
composed of 24 students broken into teams of 4. Members are chosen by their teachers in 3rd and 4th grades. Students are chosen who show the characteristics of being responsible and respectful.
Each week a different team collects the bins with the paper that the teachers have recycled throughout
the week. Instead of having the paper go into landfills, we have partnered with SP Recycling
Corporation out of Richmond to come and collect the paper. In return, we get a small amount of money
that is used for various activities in the school. The students are rewarded with celebrations throughout
the year for their hard work.
Our custodians have noted at how much less trash we have now. This is a wonderful way to help the
environment and teach the importance of recycling.
