Don’t throw out those dried out and used up markers….

…ColorCycle them!

We’re so excited to tell you about a very special program we’re coordinating at our school in conjunction with Crayola. It’s called Crayola ColorCycle – an amazing new program devised to turn used markers into energy!

All around Moraine Elementary students and teachers will be collecting used markers that are ready to be discarded. The markers will be sent to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel. This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more!

Please help support our efforts by sending your kids in with any used markers you may have around the house – even non-Crayola brands. A marked drop-off box will be located at the front entrance for your child to deposit the markers.

Thank you in advance for participating! With the help of parents like you across the country, the Crayola ColorCycle program can keep tons of plastic out of landfills each year.

Remember, don’t throw out that used marker—ColorCycle it!

Sincerely,

Moraine Green Team

*Markers will be accepted while the school office is open, even after the last day of school.

PTA Updates – Family Outreach, My School Anywhere, 2/6 PTA Meeting Topic

I am grateful to be able to say a big “THANK YOU!” to PTA members.  At our last meeting you approved a new budget item for Family Outreach.  By doing so, you opened the door to all Moraine families, regardless of financial circumstances, to join and participate in PTA activities.  I am also grateful to Dr. Bryan, who will confidentially make this money available to the appropriate families; the PTA leadership team will never be given names of recipients.
Are you feeling frustrated because you don’t have contact information and addresses for your children’s friends?  Here’s a tip: My School Anywhere, our electronic student directory, is made available to you as soon as you join the PTA!  Families input and manage their own contact information in this system.  Instructions for accessing My School Anywhere can be found at morainepta.org under the PTA Membership tab.
Please join us for our next PTA meeting, February 6 at 7:00 p.m. in the Media Center.  Dr. Bryan will be our guest speaker that night.  She will be discussing standardized testing and Moraine’s academic intervention process, which is always enlightening.
Regards,
Kelly Wessner
PTA President
