Children's School students collect cans for recycling project

June 01, 2009

For the last two months, the students at Hagerstown Children's School have been participating in a recycling program titled Recycle/Conserve It.

On April 23, Harvey Hoch, Washington County recycling coordinator, spoke to the children about the importance of recycling and what items can be reused.

Chris Burch from the Washington County Soil Conservation District gave a presentation about streams and forests, and the importance of keeping them clean.

To culminate the study, on May 20 and 21, the children were asked to wear green to show their support.

The children participated in crafts, including planting flowers in recycled yogurt cups and making vases from recycled glass jars brought from home.

The students collected aluminum cans on the two days and took the cans to Conservit.

The students raised $54, which will be donated to the Humane Society of Washington County.

The school, at 141 S. Potomac St., in Hagerstown, is for ages 2 through kindergarten.
