Recycle Electronics & Raise Money for Education

 

 

Dear Parents,
 
I know Santa was be very generous this Christmas.  If your family found some electronic goodies under the tree and needs to recycle the old ones we have a place for them to go.  Bring your old Computers, Keyboards, LCDs, Monitors, Fax machines, Printers, Copiers, Video Game Consoles, Cameras, Laptops, Camcorders, MP3 Players, VCRs, DVDs, Cell Phones and Telephone Equipment to Vineland media center in January and we will have them picked up by SIR International Recycling.
 
All proceeds go to the Superintendent's Foundation For New Education Initiatives. Last year we recycled over 1,000 pounds.  We want to keep more electronics out of our landfills and raise money for education at the same time.  Go Green !

 
Thank you.  I wish you and your family a new year full of health and happiness.
 
Mrs. MacLaren, Principal

WHY A REGULAR BEDTIME IS IMPORTANT FOR CHILDREN

by Michelle Trudeau (NPR - December 16, 2013)

 

Children who have irregular bed times are more likely to have behavioral issues than children who have a regular bedtime routine. A survey of 10,000 children showed that irregular bedtimes are linked with difficulties such as hyperactivity, acting out and being emotionally withdrawn. Researchers think inconsistent bedtimes probably affect young children like jet lag.
