2018-19 Clean Campus Awards

West Birdville Elementary has been awarded $500 for being the Cleanest Campus in Haltom City for the 2018-19 school year. Keep Haltom City Beautiful (KHCB) rated the local school campuses on having litter-free grounds, available litter and recycling barrels and the general appearance of their campuses. Each school also submitted their current projects, events and activities that support the KHCB mission, along with photos.

They hold a “clean hall contest” where they award the winner a special trophy to proudly display. They also have posters throughout the school to remind students to recycle. During P.E. they walk the grounds and pick up any trash that they see. They recently had a group working in their flower beds on a Saturday and the kids worked with them for a few hours that day. They have printed signs on all paper towel dispensers that remind students to use only two after hand washing. They truly do their best to teach their children and remind their staff that having a clean campus and recycling does make a difference on the campus, our city and the world.

Haltom High School was awarded $250 for their efforts. The STUCO students recycle all paper products from offices, as well as having a school-wide recycling program. They help teachers unplug all electronics to conserve the energy over long weekends. During Energy and Environment Week, STUCO students made videos about environmental issues and ways to resolve them to help the environment. Students pledged to protect animal habitats, to recycle plastic to save turtles from plastic pollution in waters and to conserve water. The Science Club hosts Waste Out Wednesdays to pick up litter around campus after school. They also participate in the Crayola Color Cycle where they send old markers to Crayola to be recycled. The annual officers retreat was spent up trash on the Trinity River in boats and kayaks (pictured on the cover). They coordinated with the Fort Worth Zoo to present “Wild Wonders”. The FW Zoo brought an assortment of animals to HHS, educating students on animal adaptations, different ecosystems and animal interactions. Through Project Wild, students have access to over 200 activities such as “Oh Deer” which focuses on limited resources and “Ecosystem Scavenger Hunts” to get the students outside and explore what is local.

Congratulations to West Birdville Elementary and Haltom High School staff and students for their commitment to protecting our environment and Keeping Haltom City Beautiful.
