Holman School Recycles Ring Carriers!

Ring Leader Recycling Program is designed for both formal and informal educational venues to help minimizing the damaging effects of litter on the environment. The Ring Leader Recycling Program is an educational experience, involving recyclable six-pack rings and the Three R's — Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

Send in your six-pack rings & plastic multipack carriers in to Mrs. Johnson, the computer teacher, or leave with the receptionist.  Thank you for your support!
