Dear Parents,


I’m excited to tell you about a very special program I’m coordinating at our school in conjunction with Crayola. It’s called Crayola ColorCycle – an amazing new program devised to turn used markers into energy!


All around Latonia 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!


Please help support our efforts by sending your kids in with any used markers you may have around the house – even non-Crayola brands. Drop-off boxes will be located around the school for your child to deposit the markers.  Ask your child to look for the Color Cycle Posters at the two drop-off points: the Library (2nd floor) and Ms. Mackin’s Office (1st floor).


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.


Remember, don’t throw out that used marker—ColorCycle it!

APRIL IS FINANCIAL LITERACY MONTH!  Take part in some of the activities!

The Kentucky Council on Economic Education is holding a FINANCIAL LITERACY CHALLENGE quiz competition for elementary, middle, and high school students.  Quick 12-16 questions – can be taken at home or school. (As long as they do it on their own!) Students who score 100% will have their name put in a drawing for a $20 gift card.  Teachers will be notified of all students who score 100% - in early May.


Quizzes are only available during April! www.econ.org/flmonth
