Recycling Smash Event - Help NEEDED!

We need to prepare for the first recycling collection of the year by sorting and crushing the backlog from last school year. We can then get the most money for the school from the recycling company when they pick up and process the bin. Come on by this Saturday anytime from about 8:30AM to 10:30AM to the ESS lot. Kids are welcome to come help - they like to crush! Bring some latex gloves, hat, sunscreen and water.

There are around 500 families that participate in this program annually. PV is looking for a chairperson to coordinate with the district liaison and PV room parents to collect donations for the families that PV adopts.
