Help Us Recycle!

Once again, the Lakota Schools will be collecting markers for recycling as part of the Crayola ColorCycle program.  Last year, we collected over 3,000 markers!  This amount helped create 10 gallons of fuel and kept the plastic out of the landfills.  Our collection drive will start on September 4th and run through the end of the school year.  All forms and brands of markers will be accepted – including dry erase, permanent, and highlighters.  Please send in your old markers with your child or drop off at your building’s office.  We will have collection bins located throughout the buildings.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Melissa Renfro at mrenfro@lakotaschools.org
