It Is Easy Being Green

While Kermit the Frog might disagree, being green is easier than you think. Yes, the climate crisis is overwhelming. But there are many small ways to make a daily difference. Please pack your student’s lunch in multi-use containers with reusable silverware and a refillable water bottle. When preparing lunch at home, engage your child in the conversation to ensure s/he/they will consume what you pack. If your child eats school lunch, encourage him/her/them to avoid wasting food. Let’s make Cragmont as green as it can be!

1/29 Staff Appreciation Luncheon Fourth and fifth grade families are hosting a staff appreciation luncheon this Wednesday to thank Cragmont teachers and staff for their hard work. Families can deliver ready-to-eat homemade or store-bought items to the second-floor staff lounge between 8:15 am-12:00 pm on Wednesday. Sign up here if you wish to contribute. Questions?
