FITCHBURG — Crocker Elementary School custodian Rondy Becker, with Crocker Elementary School students, introduced the recycling club “Green Team” at the school as part of 21st Century After-School activities.

Children learned about the economic impact of recycling different kinds of material, as well as honing their math skills by doing mental math addition and multiplication, as they gathered items for the bins.

“It has been a great learning experience for the kids involved,” said Becker, who has worked at Crocker for the last seven years. “I have taught them about the many benefits of recycling and how it can not only benefit the school and community, but themselves and their families as well. It has been a huge success.”

The Recycling Club decided to donate the funds they raised to Be PAWSitive Therapy Pets and Community Education.

Director Sally Cragin, with therapy cat Mr. Wuffles, visited the children to receive the check.

“We are so impressed with the hard work the Recycling Club has done with our kids to improve their school,” Cragin said. “These funds will be shared with Sigrid Warren, Licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator, and will be put toward helping pets in shelters that we support. Thank you Recycling Club.”
