Students at Kearney School District’s LENS school have been participating in the BULLDOGS Respect campaign by showing respect for their community with a recycling initiative. They’ve recycled about 150 pounds of waste. That equals the energy savings it would take to power a refrigerator for a year and the carbon offset generated by three evergreen trees grown for 10 years.
LENS is an immersive learning experience for third, fourth, and fifth graders where student learning is prioritized to include engagement and authenticity. Located in a wing of Kearney Junior High School, LENS includes students from across the school system. Faculty at the school have played an important roll in the district’s focus on Project Based Learning.
