A note from Janet

Green Team Cleaning Products

The students love making them and they have just as much fun using them. The Green Team cleaning product form is available on the W drive and a few copies will be available on the Vic House bulletin board. (Older versions are still floating around, so make sure the foaming hand soap refill is listed on there.) Completed forms can be put in the mailboxes of either Kelly or Janet.

Quick Tip: Instead of using dryer sheets, use 1/2 cup of plain, white vinegar (just pour it into the washer's liquid fabric softener dispenser.) Nope, the laundry won't smell like vinegar; we promise! According to's database, all Bounce dryer sheets, for example, scored a D on their ratings list, which means they are of "high concern to health or the environment." Downy scores just as poorly. Yikes!

Track Coach Needed!

If you, or someone you know, is interested in coaching this year's track team - PLEASE contact Andrea ASAP! Share your passion of running with Upper & Middle School students! This is a position that offers monetary compensation... so, you get paid for doing something you love! No bad, huh?!
