Chip/Snack Recycling Collection - Thank you!

The Environmental Committee would like to thank students and school staff for their participation in the Chip/Snack Bag Recycling Collection, which ran from 11/5 - 11/22. A big thank you especially goes out to the lunchroom staff who helped facilitate this collection. The collected bags have been sent off to Terra Cycle, where the bags will be melted into hard plastics that can be remolded to make new recycled products. What a great way to help our environment!

MABEL'S LABELS FUNDRAISER

Keep track of your things AND support Hickory Point at the same time? It's a no-brainer! Now, when you order from Mabel's Labels, 20% will come right back to Hickory Point. The labels are a fun, easy, and washing machine, and dishwasher safe way to label your kids clothes, lunch box, water bottles, etc.  Now is a good time to order those return address labels for your holiday cards, or teacher stamps for holiday gifts! Use this link to support our school. Happy shopping!

HOT LUNCH UPDATE  

Thank you to all of the hot lunch volunteers and to those of you who step in to substitute when needed!  In an effort to keep the office and Lunch Solutions aware of who is signing in to volunteer, please make sure only one person is arriving to take your place, if you ask for a sub.  The hot lunch committee will do their best to confirm subs.  More clarification to come!  DON'T FORGET TO GET YOUR NEXT HOT LUNCH ORDER IN BY DEC. 23RD!
