The Sylvan Hills Middle School Green Team was honored this week as a $1,000 recipient of a grant from the Regional Recycling District. SHMS was one of 10 Little Rock-area schools this year.
The SHMS Green Team was established in 2017 and is advised by Ms. Patricia Archambeau. The organization's 20 members recycles from each classroom and during lunch, and so far this year has recycled 12,723 pounds - the weight of a killer whale!
The group plans to purchase bins needed to recycles batteries and bring more recycling education to SHMS and the community.
