Attention students:  Ms. Mann's advisement has a challenge for you: Let's recycle more than we throw away.  The cafeteria is a great place to start.  By now you've noticed the big blue recycling bins along side the trash cans in the cafeteria.  There are posters on these bins so you know what goes into the trash and the items that can be recycled.  For example, leftover food should go into the trash, but did you know you can recycle your plastic containers, paper bags and milk cartons?  We appreciate your help!
