Paint Branch Elementary School in College Park is working toward a cleaner environment, thanks to its newly formed Green Team recycling club.
The Green Team, a group of 30 fourth- to sixth-graders who spend time after school on Fridays making the community a cleaner place, was created last month by Kimberly Reddick, an English for Speakers of Other Languages teacher at the school.
Principal Emmett Hendershot said that when Prince George’s County mandated that schools improve recycling this year, Reddick recruited a group of student volunteers to collect recycling from each classroom.
“All this is her doing,” Hendershot said. “She’s been doing a great job with it. She’s very enthusiastic and she really gets them all fired up.”
