Recycling with Miss Thea and Sweet Home Sanitation…why recycling is important--Our community, like thousands of others across America, is running out of sanitary landfill space. On a national and global scale, society as a whole is consuming valuable natural resources, some of which are non-renewable. Let’s view the garbage truck too…it will be clean (I hope!) Let’s craft using recycled items!

AG in the Classroom with Teacher Carolyn …what is the buzz about bees? Learn about the amazing and complex life of bees, how they help pollinate plants, and how honey is collected by beekeepers for us to eat. Bees play an important role in agriculture and we often don't recognize the impact that pollinators have on the food that we consume. This lesson teaches students about cross-pollination and the roles of bees within the hive
