WE WANT YOUR OLD WORN OUT CHRISTMAS LIGHTS

Looking For Lights!!

As the weather is getting nicer and you are taking down your Christmas lights,

 our PTA would like your worn out Christmas lights .

The PTA is recycling any and all Christmas lights that

you might be thinking of throwing away. The money

raised from recycling these lights will be used to 

fund student events. So don’t throw those

lights in the trash, send them to school and recycle them.

We will collect lights into May.    Thank you-Your PTA
