Reading's mayor is giving an elementary school high marks for its efforts to recycle.

Mayor Vaughn Spencer presented the "Environmental Stewardship Award" to Amanda Stout Elementary School.

After a recent presentation about the importance of recycling, more than 125 fourth grade students enrolled in the mayor's "Kids for A Clean City" club.

The club encourages students to improve their neighborhood by not littering and taking part in cleanup events.
