  • If you are a student who is looking for something to do during a lunch hour, and would like to help out please go to Madame Shipley’s room at break today. She will set up a schedule with interested students who could help her out with picking up the containers and recycling them. It would obviously not take ALL the lunch hour, and you can still have time to yourselves, but it would be a great help to our environment if we can recycle these containers. 
  • So again, please meet Madame Shipley at break if you can help out sometime during the lunch hours. 
  • Additionally there will be a little change in the cafeteria for the grade 7’s. If you have eaten your school lunch, please dump the food in the big green compost bin, and then put the empty plastic containers on the table beside it.
