Tyler ISD campus “Going Green”

Monday, August 20, 2012 - 12:20pm

Moore MST Magnet School is “going green” one bottle of water at a time. Students will start the school year with five new Hydration Stations thanks to funding from the Parent Teacher Association and the campus activities fund.

The Hydration Stations provide cold, filtered water from a dispenser triggered by an electronic sensor. When you put a bottle in front of the sensor, it fills up within a matter of seconds. It is more than a fancy water fountain; it is also green. Each Hydration Station is equipped with a Green Ticker that counts the number of bottles saved from landfills.

“We are bringing awareness to our students about the value of quality drinking water and the impact this
natural resource can have on their learning,” Moore MST Magnet School Principal Claude Lane said. “We
are also promoting sensitivity to helping avoid plastic waste in our landfills, and therefore improving our environment.”

Mr. Lane hopes to take those lessons to the classroom. Students in the environmental science enrichment
elective will not only learn about the importance of keeping non-biodegradable waste out of landfills, but also practice recycling by picking up recycled paper once a month and collecting aluminum cans.
