Citizenship for Mrs. Edna Bass

Very often we as Americans take for granted the rights, freedoms, and privileges afforded to us by our Constitution.  We also take for granted that there are many, many people who desire to be a part of this country. Many of these people come to America to begin the very long process of becoming United States citizens.  We have one such person here at Porter Ridge. 

Mrs. Edna Bass, Spanish teacher here at Porter Ridge, has spent several years to become a United States citizen and earned her citizenship this year. She brings a diversity to the school that is appreceiated by students and staff.

Porter Ridge Middle Recycling Project

This year in connection with Earth Day, the Chibchas club has begun a school-wide recycling campaign.  Mrs. Bass, the Spanish Club advisor, has helped students organize this campaign. Several recycling cans were given to the school to collect recyclable materials like, cardboard, paper, glass, aluminum and plastic.

Each classroom was issued a small bin to gather recyclables, and every Monday one representative from each class brings his class bin to a common area for sorting.  The Chibchas club members sort through the bins and group the recyclables for pick-up.  When the big bins are full, they are picked up and sent to a recycling center.

Recognizing that we are all responsible for the planet, we are actively working to make our home a clean and safe environment.
