Students in 8th Grade Science Academic Lab began the process of trash can design for No MOre Trash by each designing a trash can and slogan.  The students then voted on their designs, with the winning design being a cougar to represent our school mascot (Cross Keys Cougars).  We found and incorporated nearly all recycled materials.  The students found an unused trash can in the building, the head of the cougar was 3-D modeled and cut from discarded yard signs, for paper mache we used recycled newspaper and old classroom handouts, and the paint was all extra from a different project.  The students determined the logo or theme for their project to be CKMS Cougars "Pounce on Trash".
