Save Your Broken Strings of Christmas Lights!

Christmas Lights

Chinook Park School will be starting a campaign to collect broken strings of Christmas lights so that we can sell them to Recon Metal to be recycled and reused.

Where: Drop them off at the school. We will have collection boxes.

When: From December 1, 2014- January 9, 2015

Why: The math and language opportunities that we can explore are endless…think measurement, length, weight, counting, writing and more as we learn about the life cycle of an object and how it can be reused. Proceeds will go to our environmental initiatives here at Chinook Park School, and we will donate a portion to an environmental charity as well. So, as you pull out your lights, send us the broken ones and divert them from the landfill!

Thank you for supporting another great community initiative!
