Hugo, Henry, Abby, Sarah, Jessie, and Calvin
Hugo, Henry, Abby, Sarah, Jessie, and Calvin on one of the TREX benches MCS has been awarded for plastic donations.
The TREX recycling program has taken off over the past years thanks to Ms. Bonzo and the community. Because of its incredible growth, this will be MCS' last school year collecting plastic. Don't throw your TREX-able plastics in the trash, though, because starting in January, the city of Moscow will be collecting plastic films on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month!
