The Green Committee is excited to announce that battery recycling is now available at MCS!

A container for the batteries is located in the office. Simply follow these easy steps to recycle your batteries: Step 1-Check to see if your battery type may be recycled Step 2-Tabe the ends of each battery terminal with clear tape Step 3-Place taped batteries in the designated container Battery recycling will prevent toxic substance from being released into the environment and conserve raw materials. We hope that all of our MCS community will take advantage of this easy recycling program!
Montessori Community School loves the passion our students have toward caring for our earth. They help with keeping our grounds clear of trash, working in our gardens, composting, and planting raised garden beds. Our students also implement and are responsible for recycling throughout our school. We try very hard to make our school and community a greener place.
Spring cleaning? It's that time again to bring in all of your children's gently used clothing that is too small, or unworn and swap it for something that fits. Please drop off your gently used items in the bins located in the MCS gymnasium. You may drop off items March 16th - March 20th. Then, during school hours, March 26th and March 27th, you may come browse the tables in the gym. Clothes will be separated into size and style. If you are looking for volunteer opportunities, please contact the office, as the Green Committee would love help sorting, folding, and displaying the clothes.
