Mobile Phone Recycling

Monday, January 26, 2015 - Tuesday, January 27, 2015

If you have mobile phones or other electronic device you would like to recycle, there will be a bin in the school lobby on Monday and Tuesday, January 26-27, in honor of the Jane Goodall Institute’s International Mobile Phone Recycling Day.

Mobile phones and many other electronics contain valuable minerals, including gold, tin, tungsten and tantalum (coltan). Some of these minerals are only found in the Congo Basin, and are extracted from the area that has one of the largest intact populations of chimpanzees. Recycling phones helps to stop people from destroying their habitats.

Afterschool Program *Spring News*

We are happy to announce that the Spring Semester Schedule and Registration link have been published. The new term begins Monday, February 2nd and runs through the end of the school year.

It’s a New Year and time to reorganize!

As you make room for all your new holiday loot why not donate your outgrown items? A collection box will be located in our school lobby between Jan 13th – 24th. Requested items include:

  • Legos (not Duplo)
  • Board Games
  • Dolls (think Barbie type dolls not baby dolls)
  • Cars / Trains
  • Xbox or Playstation Video Games or controllers
  • DVDs
  • Art / Craft supplies (paper, glue, tape, stickers, paint, brushes…)

Items must be in good condition and appropriate for children of ages 6-13 years old. Items will be donated to the Tony DaPolito Parks & Recreation Afterschool Program. The last two years this local city program lost its spending budget and needs to rely on donations for activities for these kids.  Many of these kids come from our PS3 school community. Donation receipts available through Dawn Bridges in the main office.
