CRAYOLA COLORCYCLE

Dear Parents,

 There is an amazing new program devised to turn used markers into energy!

 All around Gunpowder Elementary students and teachers will be collecting used markers that are ready to be discarded. The markers will be sent to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel. This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more!

Boxes will be located around the school for your child to deposit the markers.

 Thank you in advance for participating! With the help of parents like you across the country, the Crayola ColorCycle program can keep tons of plastic out of landfills each year.

 Sincerely,

 Green School Committee
