Batesburg-Leesville, SC - B-L Primary School is banding together with other schools across America to help educate children about the importance of protecting the environment and recycling goods through the Crayola ColorCycle initiative. This is the first year that the school is participating in the free program, which is being spearheaded locally by kindergarten teacher Aubrey Steele.
Through this program, a collection site is housed at the school where teachers and students can toss used, dried-up markers and highlighters. Then, the markers are packed up and shipped off so that they can be repurposed and recycled.
Also included in the Crayola ColorCycle program are standards-based lesson plans that can be used to enrich instruction and encourage class discussions.
