Ecology Club News!

Greetings, Olive families! The young ecowlogists at our school have been pretty busy these past few months accomplishing some amazing and meaningful things!

Watch the super fun and upbeat video they put together to share their passion about the environment and to remind their friends that living green every day is not as hard as you might think!

Stay tuned for the reveal of a special recycled pop art project they have been working on to celebrate America Recycles Day!

A very special thank you goes out to Diane Sharrow who visited the club this Dember. Ms Sharrow is a Senior Inspector with the Environmental Protection Agency with years and years of experience. She was happy to share with the students many interesting facts about her profession and her responsibilities and about the important role the EPA plays in keeping our air, water and communities safe and clean!

The Ecology Club wants to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season! We meet every first Friday of the month after school at the LMC. If you have any questions or would like to join, contact Judi Schuch or Zhaneta Roura.

 

Need to Recycle Old Electronics or Batteries?

Take household batteries and small electronics (monitors, laptops, MP3 players, video cameras, ebooks, cell phones) to the Village of Arlington Heights, 200 E. Sigwalt. These items then go to the Lions Club or Avenues to Independence, a company in Wheeling, IL that employs challenged adults to dismantle the electronics and recycle components parts. Do your part too! Message sponsored by your OMS Ecology Club.

Make a WASTE-FREE Lunch for your OMS Child on September 25th

Waste-free what? You heard it…a waste-free lunch. On Friday, September 25th, pack food in a re-useable lunch bag and a canteen you can wash and use again. Use containers and utensils that will wash and pack a cloth napkin. Buy in bulk and scrap the individual serving bags or the zip bags. Save those items for field trips and other occasions. Be smart and create less waste. Thank you!
