Earth Week
Frank Otis Elementary

Earth Week is April 16-20! During that time your child will be raising funds to help their grade level's endangered animal. Please start collecting any loose change you have laying around to help your kids toward this goal. Grade level animals will be announced at the next Monday assembly.

USED SNEAKER DRIVE IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW!

TERRACYCLE UPDATE AND PROCEEDS 
VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE ENVIRONMENTAL CHARITY
During Earth Week, students will vote on where proceeds from Terracycle go! Have your student look for 3 boxes outside of the office starting April 16th, and choose which one of the following organizations they would like to support. The winning charity will be announced at the Monday assembly on April 23rd.
Remember, for every CORRECT piece of Terracycle material we collect, Otis gets $0.01. It may not sound like a lot, but it adds up with every shipment the team sends in!
 
CORRECT items for the bins include: 
  1. foil-lined BAR wrappers only (no seaweed, dried fruit, or chip bags)
  2. drink pouches with the straws (no juice or milk boxes)
  3. apple sauce/baby food pouches with the lids on (no yogurt tubes or smoothie containers)
  4. plastic cereal bag liners, toothpaste tubes, empty deodorant, chapstick, lipstick, and mascara tubes
