Hi Aspen Families!
Here are some updates and important information:

Trex Plastic Film Recycling Challenge Update!
Roadrunners, thank you for supporting Aspen's campaign for the Trex Plastic Film Recycling Challenge this year! We ended up collecting a total of 332 pounds of plastic film, which will be recycled into composite Trex decking and other outdoor products. While we did not win any prizes for collections, we are happy to announce that our school was awarded a $3,000 check for winning 2nd place in the social media category!
Approximately 780 schools registered for the nationwide challenge and collectively recycled over 420,000 pounds of plastic film! Thank you for your help and for keeping plastic out of our landfills.
Highlight of the Week!
