Green Steps educator, Barbara Wagner, recently reached far beyond Anderson County when her mission team traveled to Guatemala. The small boy in the front is thrilled with his family’s new house and his “Go Green” reusable bag. Barbara was excited to see recycling posters in some nearby villages and a school mural made from bottle caps. She said, “It was great seeing “green” efforts even in this third world country.”

Two second grade students did a great job representing Lake Carolina Elementary Lower School at the annual American Recycles Day RETHINK Contest with their upcycled owls.
Harmony School won the Group Project Award fro the Midlands 2018 RETHINK Contest. Students made life-size models of four local species of owls and shared detailed research about each one. In addition, their teacher Jennifer Mancke, entertained us all with a Native American tale about why owls are nocturnal.
Students at St. John Neumann Catholic School made PomPoms from used plastic grocery bags for a recent celebration.
We loved this owl made from colorful cereal boxes for the annual Midlands RETHINK Contest by this 3rd-grade student from Lake Carolina Elementary’s upper campus.
Two winning projects for the annual Midlands RETHINK contest came from these 6th-grade students from Longleaf Middle School. Projects were judged on the students’ research and presentation about local species of owls as well as the students’ upcycled projects of their chosen owl.
This second-grade student from Meadow Glen ES was the youngest winner of our annual RETHINK Contest to celebrate America Recycles Day. This young student taught most of us something we didn’t know about owls…their skin turns pink if they eat crayfish!
