R.C. Waters students engage with recycling

Third grade students at R.C. Waters Elementary School in Oak Harbor enjoyed an engaging visit with Diane Ball, who is the educational specialist from the Solid Waste Management District. Her visit was intended to promote awareness of all the items that we buy that are made from recycled materials. 

The students participated in a hands-on learning activity, where students went through recycled shopping bags to see a variety of items that are made from recycled material. The program resembled a trip to the store to shop for green products, and was a great way to show the students how many items that we use every day are available for “green shopping”.

For more information about this program, contact Principal Karen Gruber at 419.898.6219.
