Young stewards of the environment work hard for Earth

Recycling paper at Gomes Elementary, Fremont, does not end with emptying contents of the blue bin every Tuesday. Instead, the Gomes Eco Club had some wet and noisy fun with paper and pulp on April 10 as members experienced firsthand how to give discarded paper a new life. Conducted by the Ream Reducing Team, a group of eco-friendly students from Mission San Jose High School, the paper-making workshop attracted 50 students into the first-grade classroom after school. Directed by Ms. Lisa Garcia and Mr. Eric Lee, Gomes Eco Club hosted the event for the second year as an environmental education opportunity for 4th- to 6th-grade Club members. As soon as students return to school after Spring Break on April 24, the Eco Club will be organizing a campus-wide clean up in honor of Earth Day.
