Markers.jpg

Dear Parents,

We are excited to tell you about a very special program we are coordinating at our school in conjunction with Crayola. It's called Crayola ColorCycle – an amazing new program devised to turn used markers into energy!

Around Our Lady of Mount Carmel students and teachers will be collecting used markers that are ready to be discarded. The markers will be sent to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel. This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more!

Please help support our efforts by sending your kids in with any used markers you may have around the house – even non-Crayola brands. A drop-off box will be located around the school for your child to deposit the markers.

Thank you in advance for participating! With the help students and parents like you across the country, the Crayola ColorCycle program can keep tons of plastic out of landfills each year.

Remember, don't throw out that used marker—ColorCycle it!

 

Sincerely,

The ECO team



OLMC is ECO Gold Certified!​

We encourage the use of re-usable containers and water bottles. We now have a beautiful water bottle filling station so lets make sure it gets used! All classrooms have recycling bins as well as there is a hallway recycling center for proper disposals. Items that are considered garbage will be asked to be brought back home. If you are keeping an item in a wrapper to inform us that the product is “nut free” that is great, just know that the empty wrapper will be brought back home that night. In order to keep lunch pails clean, we recommend that students place any waste back in a reusable container/zip lock bag for the return trip.
