Elizabeth Taggart -- RyanHeath Brook Elementary School
The Heath Brook Elementary school in Tewksbury is a K-2 school. The students are too small to lift the heavy recycling bins, but we want to promote recycling in the building and community. Two days per week, four students (Lizzie Taggart, Anna Cafarelli, Molly O'Neil, Angie Carew) from the Ryan School in town (grades 5-6) take the bus to our school to handle all of the recycling for us. This group has been coming for 3+ years now and does the job in every kind of weather with smiles on their faces. They could have been on the "Green Team" at their own school, but they realized how much the littler kids (and especially the teachers!) needed the help, so they decided to come to our school. We don't know what we would do without them!
