Our first news post!

March 22 – This is just a test, but it means our Rankin Elementary team can post live updates on the Eco-Footprint Challenge website.
Rankin Elementary School in Belmont, N.C., is among six in the Catawba River District that are taking part in the first-ever Piedmont Natural Gas Foundation Eco-Footprint Challenge. Each school is trying to reduce something it uses or throws out that can hurt the environment, like energy, water, trash and even uneaten food.
For our project we have decided to do schoolwide composting but using a special technique that ferments dairy and meat products so they can be composted, too.
This blog will allow each school to log in, post photos, text and videos and, after Rich Haag edits the materials, post them on our blogs.
The blogs will have their headlines appear on our news pages, too.
Very exciting - and after a lot of dead ends, the system works!
