School Happenings

My Energy Kit Challenge

Our school is taking the My Energy Kit Challenge and has a goal to save at least 20,000 kilowatt-hours of energy. We’ll reach this goal when at least 100 families sign up for a FREE Energy Kit from Duke Energy and use it to make their homes energy efficient. These FREE kits contain LED bulbs, faucet aerators and other useful items that can make a big difference toward saving energy at home. When we meet the challenge our school will automatically win $250. Let’s get a head-start! You can take the My Energy Kit Challenge and sign up for your FREE kit now at MyEnergyKit.org or call 1-855-386-9548.

buying a book(s) to have signed that day at school for your student(s).

You are under no obligation to buy. Only Blue Manatee purchased books

Recycling Rangers

Fact: Recycling any aluminium can help to save a great deal of energy, in fact, enough to run your home television for about three hours!


Toilet tissue accounts for 15 percent of deforestation. We throw away enough paper to make toilet paper for a lifetime. Can you spend an extra minute teaching your Kindergartner or other to use less toilet paper?

In Case You Missed It...

Pennies to Protect...(and Save Australia’s Wildlife)!
