It really was no miraclewhat happened was just this. Finding themselves once again participating in the U.S. Conference of Mayor's aluminum can recycling contest, Canfield Village Middle School students have adopted a Wizard of Oz theme complete with lions, and tigers, and hundreds of students, eager and committed to the addition of a new track at their school.
The school's quest to become the Emerald City of recycling recently bought Channel 21's Mark Monstrola to CVMS, where he spoke with CMVS teacher and head of the project, Vicki Latimer, finding along the way, many of the familiar faces of Oz, and his very own pair of ruby slippers.
With their efforts having raised $21,850 toward their goal to date, the staff and students remain driven towards the contest's $25,000 prize as they finalize track plans and continue to raise funds for their school intent on partnering with the community to make a difference in the world.

Welcoming community involvement, can donations are welcome, and it would be wise to take part in the school's mission as one would not want to arouse the wrath of the great and powerful Oz.
