Grn4Gd WASTE-FREE WEDNESDAYS–the lunch challenge continues through April 2014!  The Green4Good Committee will give out hand stamps to all kids who bring a waste-free lunch. This will be an on-going event each Wednesday up until our BIG Waste-Free Lunch Challenge during Earth Week. For tips on packing a waste-free lunch go to the District 90 website and click on the “Zero-Waste Lunch Tips” flyer.

Would you like an opportunity to volunteer for one hour and see your child during a regular school day?  We need parent volunteers to come in on Wednesdays during the lunch hour (11:25-12:25) to give hand stamps to students who have packed a lunch that creates no trash.

Don’t know much about packing a zero-waste lunch?  Don’t worry.  We’ll give you a brief training so you’ll be an expert! Please Click here to sign up. Lincoln School and the Earth appreciate it!  Thank you.
