We're Going Green! image We're Going Green!
At Richard T. Stank Middle School, we are going GREEN! We are once again collecting and redeeming ink cartridges, cell phones, iPods, video games and consoles, scientific and graphing calculators, DVDs and GPS devices, digital cameras and laptops. Money from our Go Green campaign is used to help our P.T.O. offset the cost of some of the programs they provide to our students.

Go Green runs all through the school year, so if you've got any of these items laying around, you can drop them off at the RTS Middle School Main Office (or send them in with your child) and help keep our planet clean and green and raise money for our student programs!
