Reminder: Tomorrow is GREEN DAY!

In celebration of Earth Day and as part of our ongoing Green initiatives, tomorrow is GREEN DAY at Lincoln!  Three things for our families to do:

1.  Bring a Waste-Free Lunch:  The Green Team is challenging the Lincoln School community to bring in lunches and snacks that produce little to no waste. We are working with our cafeteria staff to plan on using compostable trays for school lunches on that day.

2.  Volunteer to help with Waste-Free Lunch Day:  we need parent volunteers to assist in all lunches and with the waste audit tomorrow.   If you are able to volunteer any time between 11:45-2:45, please contact Assistant Principal Lisa Cormier at Lcormier@winchester.k12.ma.us

3.  Wear Green!  All students, staff, and parents are encouraged to wear green in support of our environment.
