Folks at Jim Stone Elementary School are excited to make their school a little bit greener!
This Saturday, from 8 am-noon, the school is hosting a "Green Apple Day of Service" that includes an e-waste drive, a bike rodeo, and several different school improvement projects around the campus.
“This is just one example of how our students, parents and staff work tirelessly with local organizations to better the environment and community, while teaching our students to have strong character,” says Principal Mark Lewis.
Kids are invited to bring their bikes for a bike “rodeo” in the school’s north parking lot, while parents work on mulching flower beds, trimming hedges, and planting trees around the school.
Anything with a cord can be dropped off for free e-waste collection in the front of the school. Volunteers will help unload the items.
The day of service is sponsored by Lowe's, The U.S. Green Building's Council, and the Jim Stone PTO.
