Recycle all of your used markers!

We ALL have used-up markers lying around - and now we don't have to throw them away! Vic West Elementary parent Sarah Holloway has started the ColorCycle program, through Crayola. Bring your used markers (or send them with your kids) to the office and pop them in the basket. Once full, a box will be sent in to Crayola, where the markers will be recycled into clean fuel to be used in vehicles, for heating and for cooking. A new box will then appear in the office to be filled. How cool is that?!

Book Fair Success!

The recent Scholastic Book Fair raised $1300 for the school! Huge thanks go out to Brianna Perry for all her hard work coordinating the book fair with staff lead Ramy Gerber. We know it's a lot of work to organize, set up and find all the volunteers, so hats off to you! And thank you again so much to everyone who stepped up and volunteered - looking forward to the April Book Fair!
