School proves it’s easy being green

For the fourth year in a row, Willis Lane Elementary has earned a Green Ribbon School designation for recycling and reducing waste. Sponsored by Cyberways and Waterways, an Austin-based charity focused on empowering kids to positively impact their health, environment and education, the Green Ribbon Schools program recognizes campuses that have extensive recycling efforts. PTA volunteer Melissa Malone got the school involved with the program and completes the annual application that details all the efforts.

Recycle your lunch kits! Local mother is #1 collector in Canada

Diane Davis, of Val Caron, is the TOP collector nation-wide of used lunch kits, which she sends to TerraCycle through their Lunchmate Brigade. The folks at Lunchmate have decided to TRIPLE her points until the end of the year, so she can raise as much money as possible for SickKids Hospital and the Starlight Foundation, charities that really helped her son Joel, who sadly passed away from a heart condition at just 18 years old. To help Diane, simply bring all of your used lunch kit packaging (any brand, such as Lunchmate, Lunchables or other tray-based lunch packaging) to École Jean Paul II, anytime Monday to Friday during school hours.

Madison Simis Elementary students reached the third level of TerraCycle (www.terracycle.com) and Capri Sun’s Drink Pouch Brigade milestone contest by collecting more than 40,000 drink pouches. For their accomplishment, the school earned 50 TerraCycle wristbands and a vinyl banner announcing their achievement.
