1. Recycle your ink and toner cartridges - Ms. Gonzalez has 2 bins just outside of her office, in the foyer of room 124, to collect them. All ink and toner cartridges can be recycled several times which will help our planet tremendously. If you would like additional facts, please see link: http://www.agreenerrefill.com/The-Benefits-of-Recycling or Facts on recycling cartridges.

 

2. Recycle your highlighters and markers - Wagner is registered as part of Crayola's recycling program called "Color Cycle". Again, you can drop off markers outside of Ms. Gonzalez' room (124), with markers or highlighters. Wagner will not get money for the marker collection but it will help keep these objects out of the landfills. See parent letter:  http://bit.do/Color-Cycle-at-Wagner
3. Clothing Recycle.- Ms. Gonzalez is collecting freshly washed sweatpants, shorts and leggings of all sizes. Believe it or not, we get many requests throughout the school year, for a pair of sweatpants, leggings or shorts (weather appropriate), due to unforeseen accidents within the school day. Clothing can rip or get stained and/or wet, and your children would like a quick clean substitute of clean dry clothes. I try and keep freshly washed and clean clothes on hand, to help out in one of these “emergency” scenarios. If you find that you have new or gently used cleaned sweatpants, leggings or shorts, please drop them off to the Parent Coordinator. If I am not there, drop them off at my door.

*Large sweatpants XL, or XXL, or leggins have been especially needed in the past and hardest to come by.
Four Reasons to Recycle in your School:

1. 1.1 million NYC students are the future!
Recycling well in schools teaches the next generation of decision makers how to care for the world's resources.

2. Recycling is a real-time example with many curriculum connections including: human and environment interactions, economic systems, community resources, and civic participation, to name just a few. Recycling is interdisciplinary, lending itself to investigations in STEM, social studies, and literacy!

3. Recycling is a life skill that students will be required to practice throughout their time in school and beyond. It's a good habit that needs to be practiced frequently and with consistency, no different than other socialization skills taught to help students participate in society.

4. Students take the lesson of recycling home, helping families to improve recycling practices and helping to make NYC more sustainable.
