The school district chose Vista Grande Elementary School as its first grammar school to recycle all items, including paper, aluminum cans and plastic bottles. San Ramon Valley Unified School District provided recycling containers, which were placed around the campus in late January. Girl Scout Troope No. 2142 is leading the campaign to help educate students, teachers and parents on the importance of recycling.
This program makes Vista Grande the first elementary school in the district to recycle. The district also supports recycling at the high schools and a few middle schools.
Girl Scouts from Troop No. 2142 are Kimberlie SooHoo, Allyssa Dorst, leader Jean Lindberg, Rachel Underwood, Lauren Steingraf, Hailey Lindberg, Emily Geranen, Julia Suffoletta and Paige Selbach are encouraging recycling at Vista Grande Elementary School.
