Waste Reduction Week
This week is Waste Reduction Week and the St. Stephen Green Team has challenged all of the classes in the school to track their waste for one week and set a goal for reducing waste in the classroom. Each class will receive a Rethink Waste certificate when they complete the challenge. Activities like this illustrate why we are an Eco School and live the words of our past Board theme, “We Care for God’s Creation.”
With the recent release of the Pokemon Go App, we have seen a surge in popularity of Pokemon Cards on the school yard. We know that many students enjoy the social aspect of discussing and comparing their Pokemon card collections. However, in order to avoid conflicts, we ask that no trading of Pokemon cards takes place at the school. We would also like to remind every student that they are responsible for any cards they bring to school. We are not responsible for any lost or damaged cards. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
