Trex Plastic Film Recycling Challenge
Every plastic bag recycled is one less bag in our landfills. Over the last three years, the Lockport High School West at Charlotte Cross (LHSWCC) learning community collected plastic bags. These bags were then counted, weighed, and returned to Tops Supermarket on Route 31 for distribution to local Trex Plastic centers, where they were sorted and shipped to Trex's manufacturing facilities in Winchester, Virginia and Fernley, Nevada. The school competed with 725 schools across the nation and placed 15th in the challenge! LHSWCC was presented with a flower box made from the recycled bags for participating in the challenge. Great work, LHSWCC students, staff, and parents!
While "Learning at Home", Charles Upson students created their own art projects in recognition of Earth Day. Students tapped into their creativity and drew pictures or made their own masterpieces. They all did something a little different, but used "art" to represent animals, planets and the things that grow.
