A trio of Vallejo elementary classrooms led the way in this year’s WERecycle! Challenge.
Jeannette Starring’s class at Dan Mini Elementary earned $133.07 in California Refund Value refunds, and Jennifer Wheelhouse’s and Melissa Nilson’s classes at Solano Widenmann Leadership Academy earned $135.66.
“My students and their families got really involved with this challenge. During school, some of my students went around our campus during their recess and looked for any recyclable materials, even items that didn’t have the CRV on them. You know that’s huge because kids hate giving up their recess,” Starring said in a statement released by the Solano Resource Conservation District.
