BV Composts! Check This Out!

Take a look at the video below, produced by District 11, highlighting our composting program and the good work our students, staff, and volunteers are doing to keep waste out of the landfills! Also, please check out the BV Composts Facebook page, link below the video, administered by our own Dr. Mary Mauzy.


Then, consider volunteering to come in at lunch time (11:00-12:30) to support the students in recycling and composting. Follow this link to our Sign Up Genius volunteer page to select the days you'd like to help out!


Special thank you to Dr. Mary Mauzy, Ms. Carrie Delius, and Mr. Kim Parsons for making this program work. A huge thank you to all the volunteers who already spend lunch time with the students - we couldn't do this without you!
