  The City of Plano has introduced a new program – the Green Star School Certification Program - that will honor and reward schools for their efforts towards environmental stewardship.  So, keep an eye out and join us for new and continuing green initiatives at Schimelpfenig!
 

We’ve already started on our path to being a 5 STAR GREEN SCHOOL – at our Panther Preview on August 1st, student volunteers broke down and counted up school supply cardboard boxes and ensured that 230 pounds of cardboard would be diverted from our landfills!  Way to go, Panthers!

World Wear Project Bin

RECYCLING SHOES & CLOTHING NEVER MADE MORE CENTS

 

Help us to be a part of diverting thousands of pounds of shoes, clothing, and other textiles from local landfills by filling our donation bin with your worn-out shoes, clothing, purses, belts, wallets, hats, caps, backpacks, hard toys, stuffed animals, and pots & pans.  For every pound collected from you, the SMS PTA receives $0.15 per pound.  The benefit to you?  Neater closets, drawers, toy boxes, and kitchens, and the knowledge that less textile waste will end up in our local landfills.
