You may remember us talking about the TerraCycle program in a blog post back in November. For those not in the know, the TerraCycle program is a recycling program taking place at Henderson International School thanks to math teacher Tara Perez. Since we posted that blog post, the program has continued to pick up steam, attracting interest from students, parents, and even 8 News Now! Earlier this month, Channel 8’s Cale Ramaker came out to the school to learn more about the program (we have the video below).

Channel 8 not only showed some attention to this awesome program – they also entered the Henderson International School into their monthly “What’s Cool in School” voting. Each month, Channel 8 highlights several different schools doing amazing things, like the TerraCycle program here at HIS. Viewers vote on the weekly segment, and at the end of the month everyone gets to vote one more time. The winning school receives $250 for their program.

For anyone curious, that final week of voting is NOW! If you’d like to vote for HIS, just head on over to and be sure to select the Henderson International School’s TerraCycle program. We’ll keep you posted on the results!
