Media Center Events
Celebrate your child's birthday or other special occasion by donating a new or gently used hardcover book to the Media Center! We will place a special nameplate in the book to commemorate your gift.
Cartridges for Kids ® is throwing a party! One lucky classroom will win a pizza party!
How can you help?
Throughout the month of November, bring in qualifying printer cartridges, laptops, used cell phones and PDAs for recycling.
Laser cartridges = 1 point
Inkjet cartridges = 2 points
Cell phones = 2 points
Laptops with power cords = 10 points
PDAs (palm pilot, blackberry, etc.) = 10 points
The classroom with the most points wins! And, the Media Center earns up to $2 for inkjets, up to $12 for laser cartridges, up to $7 for PDAs, and up to $45 for used cell phones!
Why should we recycle?
In the U.S. almost 8 cartridges are thrown away every second. That's almost 700,000 cartridges per day! Half a gallon of oil is saved each time a laser cartridge is remanufactured. A cartridge takes 1,000 years to decompose. Recycling helps conserve our resources.
