Recycling efforts of students and staff have earned our school the “Recycle Cup” award from the City of San Jose and the San Jose Earthquakes soccer team. During the three-week contest, we recycled more than all other schools participating in the challenge. 

Blackford Elementary collected 76 bags of recycling!

 As part of the award, we will receive a visit by Mayor Sam Liccardo and an Earthquakes player or mascot. 

Go BOBCATS!!!
