Many of you know Southwestern students have been collecting plastic caps to recycle into benches for a memorial garden for those Southwestern students who have passed away. GREAT NEWS! We have reached our goal and over Christmas break we will be getting 3 benches! Two will go in the memorial garden and the third will be placed elsewhere for additional seating.
This past Thursday, December 7th, our students donated all of our extra plastic caps to Delphi Middle School, who has been collecting caps in memory of Abby and Libby. We had a Girl Scout troop from Hershey Elementary pay it forward to us by donating plastic caps, and in that same spirit, we were able to donate 150 lbs to Delphi Middle School.
And if you're wondering...Yes, we are still collecting plastic caps. Our goal is to continue to collect caps and add benches around the SMS campus in an effort to continue being mindful of recycling plastics.
