The Moon Savers, Camanche’s Jr. Lego League team, would like to thank Clinton National Bank for their donation to our team. We greatly appreciate their support as we prepare for the upcoming World Championship competition in Detroit, Michigan. Members of the Moon Savers are Beau Bigwood, Jenna Dunlap, Archer Kelly, Autumn Klahn, Kennedy Melchiori, and Mia Macke. They are coached by Sheryl Kennedy.
Camanche Elementary, we are doing a great job of recycling our markers!! Mrs. Kennedy recently sent another box of dried out markers to Crayola to be recycled. Our school has now sent a total of 2,823 markers to be recycled. The Crayola recycling program accepts any brand of markers. Markers from home, businesses, offices, and school can be brought to a specially marked box in the hallway by Mrs. Kennedy’s classroom. When the box is full, all the markers will be sent to Crayola at no cost to the school. This is such an easy way to help take care of our earth and to show our children the importance of recycling!
