Support the Ironia School Community as we expand our efforts and reinforce to our children the benefits of “going green.” Help us to reduce, reuse and recycle! Throughout the year the PTO sponsors several green initiatives. The environmentally friendly service learning projects provide the opportunity to teach our children and protect our planet. Won’t you join us?
The Ironia 5th grade class (class of 2014!) will be collecting used hand held electronic devices (cell phones, iPods, digital cameras, etc.) throughout the year. All items will be recycled and help to save space in landfills. The proceeds from the program will benefit the 5th grade class gift to Ironia. A collection container may be found on the stage in the Ironia cafeteria.
Through the combined efforts of Mrs. Friedland and the Ironia PTO, we will continue to collect plastic caps and soda tabs. All items will be sorted and recycled and/or donated. Caps and tabs will be counted in our classroom Box Tops Collection Contest. Be sure to watch for details.
*Please remember to clean all caps or they will not be accepted and counted in the contest.
As we continue to support service-learning projects, the Ironia PTO is proud to participate in a used clothing drive in conjunction with Millenium Textiles of Flanders, NJ. All donated items will benefit men, women and children in need. The PTO will earn money for each pound of items that is donated. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Connie Nissel: firstname.lastname@example.org or Buffie Hyman: email@example.com.
The Ironia PTO has partnered with Viridian Energy to help provide Green Energy to all of its supporters at a lower price than they are currently paying for "brown" energy. If you currently purchase your electric through JCP&L, PSE&G or ACE, you will save money on your electric bill and make a difference in the environment. For further information, questions or to enroll with Viridian, please visit the Ironia PTO page of the Viridian website. Please note that you must use Ironia PTO as the company name.
If you have an idea for a new green project or if you would like to volunteer to help with an existing program, please contact the PTO: firstname.lastname@example.org
