As was the practice last year please complete one slip of paper per four recyclables. On each slip please record the student’s name, grade and teacher’s name. See the example below: Name: Jane Smith Teacher/Grade: 1- Reddy These slips go into a draw for prizes throughout the year. We will be holding three grand prizes this year as well as classroom pizza parties for classes in both primary and elementary who are selected through a random draw. Students travelling on the bus are limited to one grocery bag due to space restrictions. Children are not permitted to take glass recyclables on the bus. If you have several recyclables (or glass bottles) at home we would encourage parents to bring them directly to the school for Wednesday morning. Please remember we can only recycle cans, bottles (beverage/liquor) and juice boxes. Please remove all caps and straws from bottles / containers.
