  • The City of Phoenix Zero Waste Team partners with Crockett students about composting and recycling. Each student played a fun game to apply what they learned, and received a cool book and pencil made of recycled tires. 😎 The City of Phoenix’s goal is to make Crockett the first elementary school in the state of Arizona to compost all school lunch food waste, in addition to creating a long-term recycling program. Older Crockdett students are given the task to mentor the younger grades to help support the success of the program! Way to go Bears! 👏
