Room 7 at Village School has been talking about ways to help protect the environment and has decided to participate in the Crayola ColorCycle Program. Through this initiative, students in K-12 schools across the continental United States and parts of Canada can collect and repurpose used markers. Crayola ColorCycle will accept all brands of plastic markers-not just Crayola-including dry erase markers and highlighters! ColorCycle will eliminate placing hundreds of tons of markers into landfills. Please help us by saving your used markers. You can drop them off to our main office or send them in with your child with a note indicating they are for Room 7.
