Plastic Bag Collection Challenge

The classroom that raises the most plastic bags will win our annual ice cream sundae bar!

One of our Day of Giving Activities is to prep plastic bags for making plastic sleeping mats for a local organization that works with homelessness issues in our community. We need as many plastic grocery store-type bages as possible - clean and free of holes or tears. These would be Woodman's, Pick N Save, Meiers, etc. even those nice strong ones from Sendik's and Menards. If in doubt, send it in. Anything we cannot use will be given to Waukesha Recycles who will be doing a recycling assembly for some of the younger grades. It takes 700 bags to make one mat, so we really cannot collect too many!

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to Rhiannon Cupkie at 414-839-4686. Thank you!

plastic bags are needed!!! Bring in by Friday April 26
