MES students strongly believe in keeping the environment healthy and beautiful. Our 5th grade students participate by collecting recycling from the classrooms and staff offices. Students also help with the compost pile and help to maintain the gardens by mulching, raking leaves, and planting in the spring.
Our school recycles everything except glass. Two multi-purpose bins are located next to the school garage. Paper is recycled in the two bins next to Poplar Street. Recycle bins are located throughout the school to collect paper, soda cans, and plastic items.
The Recycling Club meets daily at lunchtime to recycle. We teach our students about protecting the Earth for their future.
