EARTH DAY – PARKVIEW RECYCLES!
To celebrate Earth Day, Parkview will be holding several events to promote recycling in our homes and our school! Everyone can join in!
BAG2SCHOOL – This program is about donating used clothing, belts, shoes, boots, purses, bedding, towels, stuffed animals, etc. Any textiles are welcome. Large bags with instructions will go home with students the week of March 27. Drop off your bags to the school between April 18-21.
RECYCLE ELECTRONICS – Do you have old key boards, cables, TV’s, speakers, printers, monitors, photocopiers, DVD’s, ink & toner cartridges etc? Bring them to Parkview on April 22 between 9:00-12:00. The more you bring the more money the school raises! Fliers will go home with students the week of March 27 with more details. Extra fliers can be given to neighbours and friends.
BATTERIES – Used batteries are being collected in the school lobby now until April 21.
BOTTLES – In support of the Grade 8 Graduation, the parent grad committee will be collecting empty wine/beer/cooler bottles, beer/cooler cans and tetra packs on April 22 in the school parking lot from 9:00-12:00.
Bike and Helmet Safety Inspection
Station Ski & Ride will be offering Parkview students a free bike and helmet safety inspection on Monday, April 3rd from 3 to 5 pm. The inspection will include minor adjustments to your bike, suggestions on how to make your bike safer and an assessment to ensure your bike helmet is properly fitted. Students can bring their bikes and helmets to the area outside the Intermediate doors (beside the parking lot) from 3 to 5 pm. As part of our recycling and re-use efforts, should anyone wish to donate unwanted bikes, we would be happy to find your bike a new rider. Bicycle donations (adult or children’s bikes) can be dropped off after school on April 3rd during the bike and helmet inspection.
