Miami School Has a Different Way to Help
What is your school doing to help the environment? Are they recycling, replacing light bulbs or fixing leaky faucets? Are there contests you can enter to promote water conservation? St. Theresa Catholic School in Miami, Florida, is one of many schools doing its part to help the environment. Here students help their school take part in a mission: a mission to help the environment.
St.Theresa Catholic School participates in a program called Funding Factory Cartridge Recycling Program. This program collects cell phones and ink cartridges in exchange for hardware and software technology products. St. Theresa School wants to keep its technology up to date. Every year, the school sets a new goal for how many cell phones and ink cartridges to collect.
The school also has an earth-friendly way of sending announcements home to the students: All announcements are made on the school’s web site. It's called the Brown Envelope. A newsletter for parents, the lunch menu, and a calendar of events are all posted online.
I have learned at my school that If we all work together, we can make the world a better place. I am proud to be a student at St.Theresa School.
