How are you incorporating your environmental projects into your school's curriculum?: 
These projects are being started with students with special needs in mind. The name of their class is labled as a Functional Life-Skills Classroom(FLC). The students are very hard working and are included with the general population of students in many subject areas including science. The staff here think that adapting projects that focus on the environment and how to conserve and respect what we have will be a great addition to the curriculum already in place. These projects will act like unit lessons and can take as long as they need to. There is a lot of flexibility in the directions that we can take. Part of it will depend on what the students find interests in.
Currently we have just started a recycling program here at the school. This is in conjunction with the local recycling center here on the base. They have provided free bags for recycling paper that have been placed in nearly 20 classrooms as well as two recepticles for combinations of glass, plastic, and aluminum. This was started in January and is slowly taking shape and picking up.
