Dear Students, Staff and Parents: Did you know that the production of consumer electronics directly and negatively impacts the environment? More than 80% of all the electronics we use are reusable but how many of us actually properly recycle all our used electronic devices and unwanted or broken jewelry. Well now is your chance to MAKE A DIFFERENCE!! North’s Garden Club is conducting a recycling fundraiser. We are simply asking you to protect the environment by donating your used consumer electronics and unwanted, broken or mismatched jewelry.  This event will take place during all lunch hours during the week of March 1-11 and also during Parent Teacher Conferences March 3 and March 7th. Items we are looking for are working/not working/outdated cell phones, digital cameras, laptop computers, ipads/ipods, tablets, inkjet cartridges, gold, silver & platinum jewelry, mp3 players, gps devices, radar detectors and all assorted book readers. Boxes will be located in the School Counseling Office. Thank you in advance for your generosity. We hope to collect many items!!
