Students at McKnight Middle School helped the school obtain level one certification. The school doubled its recycling rate in one year to obtain the certification. Contributed

McKnight Middle School 7th-graders have been recognized by King County for their school-wide recycling and sustainability efforts. The students, lead by science teacher Carlie Jonas, reached Level One of the King County Green Schools Program by doubling their recycling rates in just one year. Students created science projects of sustainable systems to implement in the school, including: making fashionable clothing out of old clothes, designing possible hydro-electric systems, helping construct and plant a community garden, and more. Students also worked with staff in the school and district food services departments to plan a sustainable lunch day where the school lunch menu was as non-processed, local and organic as possible.
