Character Education Donates 50 Sack Lunches

Character Education students at Diamond Fork Junior High School have been busy.  Every Friday of the school year this class of 33 seventh graders collects hundreds of pounds of used paper to recycle.  After visiting each room in this school of over 1,400 students, the used paper is then hauled to the back parking lot and deposited into the recycling bin.  This recycled paper is purchased by a recycling company, which generates over $300 a year.
