Welcome to the space for Living Waters School

Living Waters
We have started a recycling paper program. Each class has two boxes, 1 for reusable paper and 1 for recyclable paper. The recyclable paper is then turned into pulp and made into paper. The goal of making the paper is to sell it within the school community and raise money towards a mulcher for the school which will help reduce the schools waste by 79%. The children are part of the whole process. Teachers are also using the reusable paper to photocopy on again.
