LFDCS Recognized as one of top five schools for Composting and Recycling Program

LFDCS has been recognized by the City of Lawrence and Mass Department of Environmental Protection for our Environmental Action efforts with our Composting & Recycling Programs! This could not be accomplished without support from everyone.

Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) recognized students from 63 schools across Massachusetts with Green Team Awards for outstanding environmental stewardship and educational activities. One school won the grand prize, and four schools were recognized for going "above and beyond" with their efforts to promote sustainability and responsible leadership in their community. See awesome messages below:

"Congratulations!!!! The Lawrence Recycling Department is proud of the Lawrence Family Development Charter School for launching a very successful program to reduce the solid waste in their cafeterias. We were able to assist in the process of implementing this program, and we are proud to see the amazing results and getting recognized by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDep).

With strong support from leadership on campus, LFDCS started a source separation program in their cafeterias that diverted 14 tons of food from the waste stream. Their Green Team students participated in regular lunchroom weigh days and have been dedicated in minimizing food waste and increasing recycling at school, home and in their community."

We are so happy and proud of our results! Congratulations to our school community!!!!!!!
