The money will be used to add recycling bins to the school. As well as start collecting other items. Environmental Club Kids By Leslie Lopez and Jocelyn Valdez Environmental Club is important to us because it helps the world keep clean. We recycle to help the school. Another thing that is important about our club is we clean up around the school. The kids go outside and clean up different areas of the school grounds like: behind the school by the fence, the swamp area, the playgrounds, by the path and forest. Recycling is also good for the school because when we collect it, the items are sent to a company and our school gets money. The more we recycle the more money the school can have. The money is used for the school and field trips. In this issue: Energy Saving Tips By Gabe Silva and Diego Vega Saving energy helps save the Earth. Here are some ways to save energy!
