Caring for Our Planet: Kindies Achieve 'Egret' Status for Collecting Bottle Caps
Our Rumsey Kindies have been learning about how to help our planet this year. In particular, they've been making a meaningful impact on creating and maintaining plastic-free waterways. Over the past year, the class has collected 50,504 bottle caps for the Million Bottle Caps program with the SoundWaters organization.
For their efforts, SoundWaters awarded the class with the "Egret" status! The foundation recognizes schools that collect allotted amounts of bottle caps. An "Egret" school is a school that collects 45,000 bottle caps.
From here Kindie Teacher Mrs. McGrew plans to continue the crusade to raise awareness and make an impact on our waterways. She encourages students and parents to collect bottle caps throughout the summer and bring them in next fall. We hope to reach the next status of "Turtle" school by raising 70,000 bottle caps next year.
