Dixon is proud of the work we do to help support our environment, not only on Earth Day, but everyday of the year. Kindergarten students created Public Service Announcements to share throughout the building. First grade students created inovative projects out of recycled items. Fourth grade students partnered up with their Kindergarten buddies and wrote positive messages with sidewalk chalk. We were the first elementary to switch to silverware versus plastic, which saves throwing away over 50,000 spoons and forks into the landfill. We were also the first school to recycle milk cartons, resulting in 55,000 to be recycled each year. We have 3rd through 5th grade recycle helpers and are continually teaching our students to respect our Earth. Let me know if you have any other ideas that we could implement.
