At our April CPTA meeting, a program was brought to our attention, a project called ABC (A Bench for Caps).
This program was designed by children for children as a teaching tool for lifetime habits of GREEN LIVING. Children promise to send caps that have been sorted by them to remove metal and other contaminants. Green Tree Plastics promises to put their caps into a bench for our school!
See the next page of this newsletter for a list of accepted lids.
If you would like more information you can visit www.greentreeplastics.com.
To collect lids, SVLS will be holding a LID WAR from April 23-26. Each classroom will have a container to hold their caps, and at the end of the week CPTA will weigh the containers to see what class has the most caps (by weight)!
The winning classroom will receive a surprise prize, so start collecting your lids!
