The Green Team will be collecting hard to recycle personal care items at this year’s Spring Picnic on June 9! We’ve signed up with Terracycle to participate in their mail-in recycling programs for beauty products and oral care items. These programs are free to us, sponsored by Garnier and Tom’s of Maine (but any brand item can be recycled). Items to bring include bottles, caps, tubes, jars, etc. for cosmetics and skin care products, toothbrushes, floss containers, toothpaste tubes and caps, and deodorant tubes and caps. Please empty each container, so that we are not increasing shipping weight with unused product.
We have also signed up with the Crayola Colorcycle marker recycling program. We will have a marker collection box at the Spring Picnic. There is also now a box for ongoing collection in the hall outside the art room. Markers can be any brand, and highlighters and dry erase markers are included.
Join Lawrence's New Family Welcome by being a first point of contact to families new to Lawrence. The welcome team is in search of 1 or 2 more members to help with school tours, showing new families around the school and answering any questions they may have. Tours currently occur one Tuesday per month at 8:15 (after drop-off) and one Thursday at 1:40 (before pick-up), so anyone who can commit to two or three of those per semester would be a big help! The welcome team would appreciate any help, but is seeking a middle school parent/caregiver, in particular, to add to the range of experience available to new families. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
