Recycling Club!

Fourth Graders Lead the Way to a Cleaner, Greener MatSu!

This year, twenty fourth grade students committed part of one lunch period each week to help

Fronteras recycle materials from the Blue Bins found in each classroom, the office and the

teachers’ work room. They collected a minimum of five large bags of mixed paper, four to five

bags of white office paper, and a trunk full of cardboard every week! They learned that each of

these can be 100% recycled, right here in Alaska, through the Valley Community for Recycling

Solutions. They also learned that recycling these items saved them from going into the MatSu

landfill, which is being filled more quickly than anticipated because of the Valley’s growth.

These students worked hard, and were rewarded with stickers and a small treat weekly, and

celebrated Earth Day and the 25th Year of the Recycling Center with Señora Carole Henry from

VCRS, who brought them each Earth chocolates and blue marbles to remind them that every

effort we make to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle is important! When asked to share their favorite

part of recycling this year, they listed: helping the environment, nature and the earth; learning

about recycling and how to recycle; having people help each other and even getting the

opportunity to go to other parts of the school!

When asked about what they would tell fourth graders next year and how we could improve

this process, they suggested helping us introduce the fourth graders and ALL Fronteras

students to how and what to recycle (that will make the recyclers’ jobs easier!); meeting

with the younger students a couple times through the year to show and remind them about the

recycling; maybe changing the time (fourth graders really like eating lunch!); having a more

defined group schedule with MORE students involved; maybe having work gloves (fabric/

reusable.) These are all thoughtful ideas that can help encourage students to keep Fronteras

recycling and improve the Valley for everyone.

Please thank these students for their commitment and hard work: Louisa Schweisthal, Aurora

Mason, Reagan Prestien, Brooke Wehrii, Avery Caldwell, Emma Wade, Delaney Hughes,

Corvyn Menashe, Logan Jefferson, Mylah Mauzy, Julian Bruce, Bella Atkinson, MaKenna

Prestien, Gabriel Wargo, Tyson Bolinder, Mia Sanchez, Kaena Reynolds, Leah Bridgman and

Lily Childers. Also, big thank you to Señora Louisa Branchflower and Señora Carole Henry for

their guidance to the students in recycling.
