TALKIN' TRASH Contest - EARN FREE TREAT(S) and R-CARDS
Talkin’ Trash (TT) is a school recycling and waste diversion competition that encourages elementary schools to engage in waste reduction, recycling, composting, and waste management practices. Every month, the top three winning schools will receive a plaque, supplies for their school, a recycled content prize for each 4th grader, and a visit from the Talkin' Trash crew! The students will also get a chance to appear on television. This is a school-wide effort to collect as much recyclables as possible.
As a school incentive to ALL students, each student will receive a treat and an R-card for every 13 gallon bag filled with recyclables. These recyclables include the following items: plastic bottles or jugs and aluminum cans. Please be sure to write the student's name along with his / her homeroom teacher's name on the bag.
Thanks in advance for your participation!

February Life skill for the month- “cooperation”
Cooperation… is working together toward a common goal.
What does cooperation look like?
People who are working as a team and cooperating with each other:
- listen to each other without interrupting
- encourage everyone to join in
- are willing to hear and accept the ideas of others
- are willing to change roles in the group, eg. may be a leader sometimes and a follower at other times
- recognize the skills and strengths of others
Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help your child this year!

Black History Month
February is Black History Month. Please talk to your children about African American Achievers. Use the internet with your children to look up information such as the Civil Rights Movement. Listen to recordings together by African American musicians such as jazz, blues, and reggae. Attend African American music and dance performances. Your child learns from you, so always speak respectfully of people from other races and backgrounds. Treat everyone with respect, and teach your child to do the same.
