Mission Work at Preschool - We are Saving the World For many years, ITBP has provided opportunities for our families to be good stewards to our environment. Through recycling and reusing, we offer programs for families to collect and return everyday household items to the preschool. ITBP will collect, box, and mail/turn them in to Ridwell and other dedicated recycling companies. These small gestures of conservation that you can do at home with your family will instill the importance of taking care of our planet for all creatures great and small. Your children will learn through your actions and our lessons that they too can make a difference. Thank you ahead of time for your future participation. Here are three 3 year-long opportunities to Recycle: Recycling Squeeze Pouches - Do you buy squeeze pouches? Help keep the squeezed pouches and lids out of the landfills! Drop off all your empty snack squeeze pouches at preschool. All brands welcome. Look for the drop box by the Tiger Class cubbies.
Spent Batteries – Parent only - We have a bin in the office near the volunteer sign-in/out clipboard. Any time you have used batteries, please don’t hesitate to drop them off. Hard Plastic Lids – Get the kids involved! - It’s amazing how many hard plastic lids can’t be recycled in your regular recycle bin. Keep a bag handy and throw in your lids from milk cartons, water bottles, detergent, etc. Let’s see just how many lids we can collect through Earth Day in April! Send those lids in a plastic bag (which will be recycled too) and we will watch our stash grow for the school year. Kids will learn just how something so little can add up to something so big!
