1) Reminder- The unwearable athletic shoe drive is on until December 14th, there is a collection bin in front of the office. Please only put athletic shoes that have no life left in them, and cannot otherwise be donated. These will be sent to Nike/Converse for their playground projects! *No other shoe type is accepted*

2) We have started a pen and marker recycling program- teachers, students, and parents please feel free to bring in used pens and markers (including sharpies and dry erase) and put them in our box inside the office (on top of the pencil dispenser across from LaShonda's desk). I know we all go through a lot of these, let's keep them out of the landfill!

3) Terracycle has partnered with Hasbro Toys for a pilot project to recycle used, broken toys! There is also a bin for this in front of the main office. The toys DO NOT have to be strictly Hasbro brand, and can include stuffed animals (which we all know cannot be donated), board games, electronic toys & games, metal/plastic/wood toys & games, action figures, dolls, etc. What CANNOT go in the bin is any batteries, so remove those first! Also no carseats, skateboards, bikes, scooters, or things of that nature. This is a pilot program, so I don't know how long it will be running- so take advantage and clear out those broken and unwanted toys before the holidays!
