EARTH WEEK: We will be celebrating Earth Week 4/23 – 4/26 with the following collections & events:
- Bernie’s Book Drive 4/23 – 5/3: Bring your new & gently used books (suitable for K-6th grade) for the Ivy Hill book drive. Collection bins will be located in the Commons area. All of the books will be donated to Bernie’s Books to increase book ownership among at-risk infants toddlers & school age children throughout Chicagoland.
- Reuse-A-Shoe Drive 4/23 – 4/26: Bring in your old shoes so they can be reused & recycled instead of ending up in landfills. All shoes except water boots are accepted. Please either put each pair of shoes in a recycled plastic bag and wrap them with a rubber band OR tie the shoes together.
- Bags for Bags Collection: Bring a bag filled with plastic bags & film packaging (over toilet paper, paper towels, etc.) to our recycle bin in the Commons area.
- Walk to School Day on Friday, 4/26: Join us to promote a physically active lifestyle! There will be six starting points throughout the neighborhood for students to meet with teachers & parents and walk to school. These six starting points will be: Douglas/Hintz @ 8:30am, Camelot Park @ 8:40am, Windsow/Valley @ 8:45am, Pinetree/Valley @ 8:45am, Ivy/A.H. Rd. @ 8:40am, and Burke/Palatine @ 8:40 a.m.
