Can You Help?
Published: Sun, Jan 8, 2017, 09:41AM CST

North continues to recycle in our cafeteria! It is going so well, keeping items out of the landfill and recycled into new things.

Thank you to the students for doing such a great job in separating the recycling from the trash. And thank you to the parents who have volunteered their time at each lunch period!

We need LOTS of parent support as we return to school. We hope you had a great holiday break, and now we will be getting back into the swing of things! Parents help by assisting at any one Recycle Station, which consist of a recycle bin and trash bin. It takes less than 15 minutes (during the end of the lunch period)!

North Recycling - Parent Help Still Needed
Published: Fri, Dec 9, 2016, 12:39PM CST

North is recycling in the cafeteria! It is going so well. Thank you to the students for doing such a great job in separating the recycling from the trash. And thank you to the parents who have volunteered their time at each lunch period!

We still need LOTS of parent support this month, as all the students get accustomed to the system. Then we’d like to ask parents to come again in January, since we will have been away from our routines for 2.5 weeks! Parents help by talking with children about what can be recycled and what cannot, and assisting at the Recycle Stations, which consist of a recycle bin and trash bin. It only takes 15 minutes (during the end of the lunch period) so we hope that you can join us!

Parent Volunteers Needed - Cafeteria Recycling
Published: Fri, Dec 2, 2016, 12:06PM CST

Sixth, seventh, and eighth grade is recycling in the cafeteria! We need LOTS of parent support during this new recycling time. Parents help by coming during the last 10-15 minutes of each lunch period, and stand at a Recycle Station, which consist of a recycle and trash bin, and assist children deciding what and how to recycle.

This is a great opportunity to visit your children during lunch, or to bring them a lunch that day since you’ll be at the school already!

We hope that you can join us!
