PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION (PTA) HAPPENINGS:
Do you know what all of these stores have in common? … Oriental Trading Company, Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, Groupon, Apple Store, Justice, Best Buy, Office Depot, Gap, Lands End, Lowes… Online purchases at these stores and hundreds more, can earn BOX TOPS for our school. By going to some of your favorite websites through links on the Box Tops Marketplace, you can earn up to 20 Box Tops for every $10 that you spend. It is as easy as 1-2-3. Earn BOX TOPS for the on-line shopping that you already do. The most successful schools in this program have a strong on-line community. Friends and family can do it too! Log on to BTFE.com to get started. Thank you! Questions? Contact Darcy Moder (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITTEE is continuing two recycling programs taking place at Ivy Hill. We are collecting old holiday string lights for recycling this holiday season. You can bring them in to school now through Friday, January 17th, 2014. This week we started a new recycling program called Crayola ColorCycle. The program turns Crayola markers into energy and helps kids understand the importance of their role in protecting the environment. We will be collecting dried out markers in the commons and sending them to a conversion facility where they will be transformed into clean-burning fuel. This recycling program will be on going until the end of the school year. Thanks for doing your part to keep these items out of our landfills! When we all do our own small part, it adds up to a big difference! If you have any questions about these programs, please contact Leah Robideau (email@example.com).
