Spanish Honor Society Initiates New Recycling Program — SRHS Spanish Honor Society members are concerned about the environment and the amount of plastic waste. They did research and discovered that Crayola has a marker recycling program. They enrolled SRHS in the program and have placed collection boxes in the planning rooms of each building. The boxes will be decorated and labeled for teachers to dispose of any type of marker: Expo, Sharpie, Crayola or any other brand. Every few weeks, a Spanish Honor Society member will come around to collect the markers to ship out, with Crayola supplying the shipping label to send the markers off to be recycled.
