After spending the week learning about the importance of protecting our earth, students at Central Park Elementary will be taking that message to the streets of Bossier and you are invited to take part.

In conjunction with National Recycling Day, a proclamation from the Honorable Bossier City Mayor Lo Walker will be issued during an assembly at 9 a.m. Friday, November 15, in the Central Park Elementary gymnasium. The event serves as the official kick-off of the Keep Bossier Beautiful “Bag It First” campaign.

Members of KBB will then lead students in a recycling lesson, followed by a neighborhood clean-up. Children will fan out in the neighborhood surrounding Central Park, picking up litter, while their younger peers plant flower bulbs at the school.

This is the culmination of an effort that began November 9 when a number of Central Park students spent part of their Saturday assisting Shreveport Green by pouring up paint during its Hazardous Household Waste Collection Day.

A recycling effort has also been initiated. Materials collected this week at the school will be taken to a local recycling center.

This is a part of Bossier Schools’ district-wide community service initiative, “Helping Hearts One Week at a Time.”

By keeping the streets of Bossier clean, these students are not only helping the environment but making it a better place for residents to live and enjoy.

Please support Central Park’s efforts to keep Bossier beautiful by attending this kick-off campaign.
