Green Goals - Save Plastic Lids for Morton
Morton is not only continuing with our Green Goals by recycling plastic bottles caps, but now we are actually going to use these bottle caps in an effort to redo our Outdoor Classroom, which is in need of a huge make-over!  We plan to rip out the rotted wood benches and replace them with plastic benches made completely out of recyclable bottle caps.  These bottle caps can be from water bottles, Gatorade Bottles, Mayonnaise Caps, Peanut-Butter Bottle, you get the picture!  Please save them all summer and then turn them into Ms. Trisko, room 212 (7th grade science) when school resumes, or you can e-mail Ms. Trisko at carla.trisko@fayette.kyschools.us and we can arrange for you to take your caps to Morton this summer.  Thanks so much for helping us to create a Green environment!
