  • Yesterday, the entire school's waste from Wednesday was weighed, and checked to see how we are doing as a school with putting items in the correct bins. A pie chart has been shared with your teachers. When we use recycling bins, we put the right things inside 84% of the time, 15% is garbage in our recycling bins, mostly plastic cutlery which is garbage. When it comes to our garbage bins, only 40% is actually garbage. We need to stop putting food, napkins and containers, especially yogurt containers, into the garbage. Special mention goes to the following classes which, when checked last week, had all their waste sorted perfectly, even garbage! Mr. Sammons, Mrs. Baumgarten, Mrs. Elton, Mr. Brooks, and Mrs. Wojcik. Let's all try avoid using the garbage can and start using the right bins more often. 
  • 1 out of every 10 people in our school brought in a Waste Free lunch on Wednesday and we have new Eco Warrior Champions! Mr. Brooks' class wins the trophy this week with 9 earth friendly lunches. Red came in first with 13, Yellow 12, Pink Purple and Grey with 8, Blue and Orange with 6, and Green with 5. Congrats everyone! And in case you didn't know...it's cool to care about our planet! 
  • Teachers, a wellness committee representative will be visiting your class this morning to tally random acts of kindness slips for this week
