Making treasure out of trash

Dickson Elementary School in Chino collects recyclable items from its students, staff, parents, and community every Friday. All proceeds are used to purchase Dickson’s “Character Counts” agendas for students.
“Not only does this help oschool-pic-2-webur school site to purchase agendas for our students, but it teachers the kids about responsibility and taking care of the environment,” said front office staff member Leticia Tafoya.
