Recycle All juice boxes are collected to be recycled. Plastics #1-6 are also carefully sorted and put into the correct bins. Over 15 000 containers are collected each year. Thank you to Encorp for helping us keep track of all our containers.
Compost Since 2006 we have collected organic waste from snacks and lunches. About 18 – 25 pounds of waste is collected each week. Compost is put into our bins in our nature garden.
There are boxes in each classroom where paper is collected to be recycled.
Think Recycle New this year is the Think Recycle boxes. Here anyone can return inkjet and laser cartridges as well as cell phones. For every twelve qualifying items a tree is planted.
No idling We encourage parents and staff not to idle around the school or in the community. Please obey our signs and do not idle around our School while picking up and dropping off students.
Nature Garden Need time to reflect on the benefits of nature, come and see our nature garden. In 2005 a garden was built for the enjoyment of our school and neighborhood. In 2008 the garden was extended to the front of our school. This garden includes a tree planted in memory of one of our students.
