Forsan Elementary School students at Elbow collected a busload of plastics in a week's time and learned a lot about recycling along the way.

Three large bales of plastic, weighing approximately 3,000 pounds, were sent to Wal-Mart’s recycling center. T

his year, the Gifted and Talented class decided to “Go Green.” All projects were based on that premise. The class visited the Keep Big Spring Beautiful Club meeting and participated in the Trash Off event in April.
