Great Pumpkin Rescue is A Success!

pumpkin collection

Thank you to all the families who carefully carried or wheeled their many heavy pumpkins to school last Friday! 

Black Earth Compost reported we collected 1,500 lbs of pumpkins! All of that material has been rescued from the incinerator and will instead help create rich soil used to grow food. The Dallin Go Green Club initiated the event, which spread to Brackett and four schools in Lexington. 

Special thanks to the very strong 5th grade students who helped us hoist the pumpkins on to the collection truck later that morning!
