Grades of Green

We invite you to join us for Trash Free Tuesdays by clicking on this link and picking a Tuesday (or two) that you can volunteer during the lunch period which runs from 11.00 am - 1,15 pm. You can sign up for one hour or the whole time - we would love to see you there, and so would the kids! We also welcome help Thursday and Friday afternoons to help pack up the Terracycle juice pouch collection and/or to mix the compost. We collect the following items to divert them from the landfill: juice pouches, ink jet containers, used crayons and used markers. Please deposit these items in the Grades of Green box in the quad at your convenience.
