Bag up Challenge

During 2 weeks in October, every student in Westview School was asked to bring in as many plastic shopping bags as they could from home, family and neighbors, far and near. We also kept tabs on who the top collecting student in the school was. This person in the end would win the prestigious award of becoming our Westview Bagger Bragger 2014!

And collected they did!! Instead of 41,065 bags going to the landfill, they will all be bundled up and shipped to be recycled into new products such as bird houses, deck material, park benches, and many more items thanks to the support of the community of Westview School. We might be a little school of 186 students, but we have one big heart.

By the end of our challenge, Ms. Soroko’s grade 5 class had it in the bag, bringing in more than 10,000 plastic bags for their classroom.  Our Westview Bagger Bragger award recipient for 2014 went to Noah in Grade 3 with 4,060 bags collected.
