The ASK Academy gained a new club this year and it is growing fast. The five week old organization, EcoASK was started by junior James Sanchez. “I was inspired to start EcoASK by my burning passion for the Earth’s environment,” he said. Because ASK is a science-oriented academy, Sanchez said an environmental club would fit in perfectly. “My favorite about the club has been to see the enthusiasm of the members going into their work.”

One member of the club, junior Angelo Speaker, said that the club wants to plant a garden somewhere on the campus, “Over on the right side of the school near the benches.” In the garden Speaker hopes there will be a compost pile. He said that he is looking forward to their upcoming project.

The project Speaker is referring to is kickstarting a recycling program at ASK. The club has acquired some recycling bins, and plans to paint them in colorful ways. They plan to take the bins and place them around the campus to promote recycling at ASK. As far as upcoming fundraisers go, Sanchez is keeping those ideas under wraps because of the competitiveness surrounding them recently at ASK.

Anyone interested in joining EcoASK can walk into a meeting on Wednesday’s during lunch in room 203. Near the end of the meeting new members will be asked to stand up, share their name, and tell the club why they are interested in joining EcoASK. EcoASK is a club for anyone who has a love for the environment and wants to keep ASK’s environment clean.
