Every month students at Prairie Jr./Sr. High School collect all the accumulated recyclables from the high school and load them on to trailers, pickups, or in the backs of cars to take to Grangeville for recycling.  It is a source of pride to us that we are known as one of the top contributors to the program.  It takes a lot of work and Troy Lorentz and Makayla Schaeffer are often seen lugging heavy green and white bags from teacher’s classrooms.  Many teachers volunteer to take turns to bring the recyclables to Grangeville.  So hats off to all of you who help and are continuing to help with this very beneficial program.
