At Webster, our mission is We Educate the Whole Child. As part of our mission, we are focused on providing children with opportunities to make a difference in their school and local community. We recently kicked off a recycling initiative by having a team from We Future Cycle visit each classroom to discuss the importance of recycling and how waste impacts our environment. A source-sorting station was set-up in the cafeteria, and we are committed to supporting children in reducing their waste, reusing what they can, and recycling whenever possible. When children are finished with their lunches, they sort their waste into various buckets that include the following: liquids, food waste, co-mingled, paper, milk containers, and lunch trays. Our initiative will extend to challenging children to find alternative ways to pack their lunches with reusable containers, water bottles, and sandwich bags.
Thank you for your support as we create a multitude of opportunities for children to make contributions to their school and local community.
