    LUNCHBOX FUNDRAISER

    We could see and feel the difference during the Zero-Waste Lunch Challenge last April. We reduced trash 50% (good for the planet), and we increased TerraCycle (good for the planet and revenue for programs). We are continuing TerraCycle collection during the 2019/2020 school year.

    Please mark all items brought to school (jackets, sweaters, lunch boxes, backpacks) with your child's first and last name so that they don’t end up on the red racks outside of the auditorium!
