A new student club has been formed at Grace Christian Academy. 'Grace Goes Green' is an environmentally conscious club designed to teach the students at Grace how they can do their part in caring for our earth.

A kick-off event held recently, showed both students and staff how they are effected by litter and pollution. They also were able to discover ways to help recycle.

Two Grace students, Laura Leigh Andrews and Jana Simmons have been multi-tasking. Both are in the current Bainbridge-Decatur County Young Leadership Class and are completing their required community service hours and bringing awareness of water pollution to the community at the same time. With the help of Suzanne Brandt, Keep Decatur County Beautiful Executive Director, they have taken the enviroscape experiment on the road.
Laura Leigh and Jana recently spent time at Friendship House and also Kiwanis showing how water is polluted.

Recycle receptacles have been placed at various points on campus and paper recycle boxes have been added in each classroom. All the plastic, paper, and cardboard collected is taken to the recycle center on Thursdays.

They are also planning a "Drop-Off Day" for the families at Grace. Parents would pull up to a designated spot ant the recyclable materials would be handed off to the students and then all recyclables would be taken to the recycle center.
