Dear Parents and Fellow Roadrunners,
Have you heard of 5th grade’s G21 project that is underway? Here’s our plan:
We are recycling three different brigades:
1. Empty glue sticks and glue bottles
2. Empty disposable tape dispenser rolls
3. Empty beauty product bottles/packaging (This one is a biggie–it includes the following: lipstick cases, mascara tubes, eye shadow cases, shampoo bottles, conditioner bottles, bronzer cases, foundation packaging, body wash containers, soap tubes, soap dispensers, lotion dispensers, shaving foam tubes (no cans), powder cases, lotion bottles, chap stick tubes, lotion tubes, face soap dispensers, face soap tubes, face lotion bottles, face lotion jars, eyeliner cases, eyeliner pencils, eyeshadow tubes, concealer tubes, concealer sticks, lip liner pencils, hand lotion tubes, hair gel tubes, hair paste jars).
A company called TerraCycle will give us 2 cents for each item collected! Once we have enough, we send it off to the company and they mail us a check. With that money, we will determine what we should buy to go in the courtyard. This is where the 5th grade students will do research and collaborate with other grade levels to determine what is needed to make our courtyard a fabulous and useful outdoor classroom for ALL!
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Each grade level has a large paper bag to collect these brigades. The bags are located in the following classrooms:
K: Mrs. Martin
1: Mrs. Potter
2: Mrs. Wilson
3: Mrs. Gates
4: Mrs. Ferguson
5: Mrs. Hatcher
Each Friday morning, 5th grade students will collect the brigades from each grade level. They will count, tally, and sort the brigades. The grade level with the most brigades brought in that week will receive a certificate. The grade level that has the MOST certificates will receive a very special prize.
Remember, we Roadrunners stick together! Let’s make this something that is FUN! No matter who wins, we all will be able to enjoy what we purchase for the courtyard, but first, we need YOU to send in these brigades so we have enough money to buy something that will be AMAZING!
If you have any questions, please ask a 5th grade teacher.
