Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
Lunchtime Recycling Is Coming to
SSKY on January 22nd!
More than half of what we throw away can be recycled. Recycling conserves landfill space, preserves natural resources and controls rising waste disposal costs. Sonoran Sky is excited to kick off a lunchtime recycling program on Monday, January 22. Our students have been learning about recycling at school. Here’s what you can do to help!
#1 AT HOME discuss recycling with your child(ren)
Lunch recyclable materials:
Paper: cardboard containers, food boxes, brown paper lunch bags, juice boxes, milk boxes
Plastic: all hard plastic containers, including plastic jugs, cups and bottles (with or without caps)
Glass: bottles and jars
Metal: aluminum drink cans, food cans
Not recyclable: styrofoam products, straws, plasticware, plastic bags, apple sauce squeeze packets, snack wrappers, foil seal lids, chip bags, bar wrappers, juice packets (i.e. Capri Sun)
#2 AT SCHOOL volunteer to help students
recycle in the cafeteria
We need parent volunteers to help students sort their lunchtime waste and get things put into the correct receptacles. There are time slots for each hour of lunch from Monday, January 22 to Wednesday, January 31. Please sign up to volunteer during your child(ren)’s lunchtime!
Bylaw revision discussion and meeting. Join us to review and update our PTO Bylaws. All members of our community are welcome. No legal or parliamentarian background required.
