Dear EVCS Students,
Our core value is social action.
Just like we sang this morning in Free to Be you and Me, we are committed to doing all we can and making a change in the world. One way we can do that here at school every single day is by recycling, composting, and reducing the amount of trash we produce. You may have noticed that our cafeteria has three different bins to throw your garbage in. Different stuff belongs in each one and it’s really important that we all try our best to learn how to do it correctly.
There are separate bins for food scraps which are composted, recyclable materials such as plastic, metal and glass, liquids which are poured down the drain, and trash which ends up in a landfill. Our goal is to put as little trash as possible into the landfills!
Learning how to recycle our plastic, metal and paper, compost our food scraps, and reduce the amount of stuff that goes into landfills will make us better stewards of our planet.
My good friend Jacob Pearleman in the 3rd grade has also brought something to my attention that he is concerned about. Jacob has noticed that a lot of kids are throwing away perfectly good food! While we work to reduce the amount of garbage that goes into landfills let’s also please try to reduce our food waste. Thanks for looking out, Jacob.
Big thanks to our second grade hosts, to all of the parents who came this morning, to the SWMM house band, and thank you to everyone who sang loud and proud this morning. Have a great day and great week everyone.
