Go Green Day – April 21

To celebrate our Going Green efforts and Earth Day, we are asking all of our students and staff to show their sprit by wearing green on Friday, April 21. Thank you for all of your support this month!


No Trash Lunch Challenge

We are celebrating Earth Day all month here at school.  One of our goals is to reduce our trash.  Can you pack a lunch for your child that will produce zero trash?  Have your child work with you to choose foods that he/she will eat, and containers that can be reused.  Try it! Check out the example below.
