Green Team is Working Strong!

The Echo Lake Green Team is sponsoring a project to collect pop tabs from aluminum cans.  This project is not only focused on recycling, but also philanthropy.  Each classroom is collecting tabs to donate to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Richmond.  They raise thousands of dollars each year from the collection of pop tabs. Please send them in with your child.  Each class has a collection container. 

Thanks for your help!

We are continuing a recycling project in the cafeteria!  Fruit pouches from applesauce and other fruit combinations are being collected in the cafeteria.  We are able to tera cycle these.  Feel free to send in pouches from home also to help with this collection and cut down on waste in our landfills.

Environmentally Driven

Join us in cutting waste in the school!  Waste free Wednesdays are a great way to start!

Join us in the fight to cut waste by using reusable packaging to lunch on Wednesdays.  This may include but not limited to using Tupperware to package food, using reusable lunch boxes, and reusable water bottles. Help us reduce our carbon footprint.

Help in the Garden

Help in the school garden this summer by watering and harvesting.  You can sign up as a family or share a week with another family.  While you are there, visit our free lending library.  We will be taking donations throughout the year for this library.
