#shareyourcolors and RECYCLE!
#Shareyourcolors and RECYCLE! Have you ever wondered what happens to your unwanted crayons? Sadly, more than half a million pounds end up in landfills every year! These crayons don’t need to be in the landfill where they never decompose but can be recycled into new crayons for children in hospitals across America! Our First Grade classes are excited to have partnered with The Crayon Initiative in recycling crayons to protect this beautiful earth and make a difference in other children’s lives! Please send in those used crayons to your child’s teacher between now and March 31st! Thank you for supporting our recycling effort at AMES!
Our Path Forward - Phase in to 5 Days
Beginning Monday, September 28th, elementary and middle school students will shift to five-days of face-to-face instruction. Although we will transition to a regular schedule, District Six will continue to follow our Covid-19 safety protocols, including enhanced cleaning procedures, temperature checks, and masks during all transition periods and when social distancing is not possible. We look forward to our students returning to a five-day schedule next week. This scheduled transition applies only to students who currently attend face-to-face. District Six will continue to follow the guidance of health professionals and make any needed adjustments should they become necessary. As always, thank you for your continued support.
