Pulaski Water Department Zion Students Recycle Box Tops? Check. Campell's Soup Labels? Check. Printer ink cartridges? Yes, those too. In this day of budget cuts and financial uncertainty, the fam- ilies at Zion Lutheran School Mt. Pulaski are taking a pro- active approach to help their students. They're finding new ways to raise money for their school while helping to save the environment at the same time! Zion, with over 90 students in Pre-School-Sth grade, recycles everything from Lunchable containers to Elmer's glue bot- tles. Boxes are clearly marked and students know the routine. With the help of the cooks and teachers, the kids are reminded everyday what can and what cannot be thrown away. Through their cooperation with Terracycle, the Zion Par- ent- Teacher League coor- dinates the recycling and in turn Terracycle gives PTL a donation. PTL then uses those funds to supplement educa- tional materials or field trips for the students. PTL also hosts the Christmas program and spring musical along with an Awards Night and 8th Grade Graduation each year. Zion asks everyone to help them recycle! Currently, these items are being collected: Drink pouches - any brand Chip bags - any brand, any size Candy wrappers - any brand, any size Writing instruments all brands of pens, markers, high- lighters, mechanical pencils Lunchable containers - brand specific Malt-o-Meal cereal bags brand specific Elmer's (empty) glue bottles and glue sticks - brand specific Any and all of these items can be dropped off during school hours in the cafeteria. Won't you consider helping? We hope so! Any questions can be directed to Barb Morris at 871-8412. 00lt. 00uIasl00i Tintess12_5 "It's old news, but there's nothing else wrong with it."
