January 31, 2013 - The Grade 5 ‘Dearness Conservation’ students at Pius XII Catholic Elementary School are collecting used batteries that the students have brought in as part of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board Environmental Policy, “Catholic education is to encourage students and staff to develop respect for the environment and become committed to the wise use of resources” as well as promote and foster “the concept of the stewardship of the earth.” Classroom teacher, Amanda Schiafone, states the importance of the program at the school. Schiafone says that 'our school participates in many activities/events throughout the school year, such the '3 R's', energy conservation, litterless lunches and many more, however, I am very impressed with all the support from students and parents from our battery recycling collection'. To this date, the students at Pius have brought in 2,286 batteries! The students will continue collecting batteries until June 1st.
