HIB District and School Self-Assessment Grades
EHCCS #1 in the State!
Congratulations to the Egg Harbor City Community School for winning the Recycle Bowl and placing first in the State of New Jersey!
Representatives from the Atlantic County Utilities Authority visited the Egg Harbor City Community School Feb. 26 to present awards for winning the state title in the national Recycle Bowl sponsored by Nestle Corp.
ACUA Board Chairman Marvin Embry presented a certificate to Principal Jack Griffith. He also addressed the student audience comprised of student council members and life skills students to express his appreciation for their efforts.
“The entire county is proud of how you embraced recycling,” he said. “Keep up the good work because we would like to see you win again next year.”
For the victory, the school received a check for $1,000 from non-profit Keep America Beautiful which Griffith said would be used to construct a privacy fence to hide their numerous recycling containers. The school collected more than 12,000 pounds of recyclables during the contest period, which equated to an average of 48 pounds per student.
An ACUA group also visited the Spragg School which finished third in the New Jersey standings. The students in Spragg School collected more than 5,700 pounds of recycled material that equated to 19.5 pounds per student.
