I am proud to announce that PRIED earned a 2nd place finish in the 6-8 grade category of the Unless Contest through the Philadelphia Zoo! I am so proud of the students as they worked extremely hard to plan and implement a recycling program! They continue to use the t-shirts they collected during their recycling clothing drive to make and sell Turtle Totes so that they can save plastic bags from entering the ocean and raise money for endangered sea turtles. The students are planning to put the money they won from the contest towards a volunteer trip to work with sea turtles and their hatchlings. I am amazed at the passion PRIED students have! They are always looking for ways to improve their communities and the lives of other humans and animals. Way to go!
