At Simmons Elementary School, We're Better Together

Students from Miss Tara Grow's class have been organizing a collection of old markers this school year. They are pleased to share that so far this year, Simmons has recycled 17.5 pounds of markers! This roughly translates to 875 markers. We will continue our collection for ColorCycle throughout the school year. Students can drop off old markers in the cafeteria,near the kindergarten printer, in the LGI, and in Miss Grow's classroom. Thank you for your dedication to recycling!
