Frank DeLima Presentations

On Monday, August 30, 2010, Frank DeLima will be speaking with our children about the 3 B's: be respectful, be responsible, and be safe. Stay tuned for pictures from the presentations.


Beginning Monday, August 30, 2010, we will be participating in an Eco-Feed Program during breakfast and lunch. Students will be recycling any excess food and liquids (i.e., milk, juice, etc.). We have been practicing with students during lunch in preparation for the Eco-Feed Program. Please remind your child(ren) that 1 bin is dedicated for excess food and liquids. The other bin will be dedicated for non-food items (i.e., plates, napkins, forks, milk cartons, etc.). This is a great opportunity for us to become a "greener" school.
