HOLIDAY LIGHTS RECYCLING: When going through your holiday decorations, many times you discover strings of lights that are not working and into the garbage they go. Instead of tossing away lights that are not usable, please consider recycling any strings of lights or extension cords. Give your lights new life with our Holiday Lights Recycling Program. The Ivy Hill PTA will be collecting unwanted lights for recycling. A collection box will be set up in the Commons area 12/9/22-1/13/23. Lights that will be accepted for this program are: mini-lights, C7 lights, C9 lights, rope lights, LED lights and extension cords. All colors and lengths, both working and non-working, will be accepted.

HOLIDAY PTA DONATION OPTION: For anyone interested in helping the PTA with our Holiday Fundraising, Direct Donations are still an option! Direct Donations are a great way for busy families to support the PTA without having to buy or sell anything – a choice we’ve been asked for and are delivering on. Go to our online store located here and check out all of your options for giving.
