Just as we all get sorted for arctic winter, it changes. At least now we are ready. Let’s enjoy it while it lasts!

Re: Markers
At the beginning of the year we asked everyone to bring in old crayons that were no longer being used to help keep them out of the landfills. Oddly enough it turns out that we do not have many crayons floating around. We decided to shift gears to markers. Please bring in any old or dried out markers and we will recycle them! There will be a collection box in room 210. We will run this collection effort for two weeks. Thank you in advance for participating.
