Quail Lake Compost Program
Did you know here at Quail Lake, we compost all of our food waste from the cafeteria? We do! Whatever food students don't finish from the cafeteria, and their own lunches packed from home, goes into our "green" compost cans, and then into our compost bins. Students learn the process food plays in making compost through garden lessons on a biweekly basis. Because compost is made on our site, students observe the process from beginning to end.
We are so excited to tell you about a very special program we are coordinating at our school in conjunction with Crayola. It’s called Crayola ColorCycle – an amazing new program devised to turn used markers into energy!
All around Quail Lake Environmental Charter School, students and teachers will be collecting used markers that are ready to be discarded. The markers will be sent to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel. This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more!
Please help support our efforts by sending your kids in with any used markers you may have around the house – even non-Crayola brands. Drop-off boxes will be located in the office and your child’s classroom to deposit the markers.
Thank you in advance for participating! With the help of parents like you across the country, the Crayola ColorCycle program can keep tons of plastic out of landfills each year.
Remember, don’t throw out that used marker--ColorCycle it!
