Hello Bradford Families!

Earth Day image In preparation for the upcoming April 26th Bradford Earth Day Celebration, all homerooms will work on plastic repurposing crafts.

WHAT: The items needed for these crafts include:

- single-use throw away plastic beverage bottles (water or soda bottles)
- any kind of plastic or metal pieces that could be used to make jewelry (screw-on bottle caps, soda tabs, yogurt/pouch caps)

Example photos of the requested items are below. PLEASE wash items before donating (thank you!).

WHERE: All donations can be brought to the front office contained in bags labeled ART ROOM. Students can also drop in the recycling bin outside the art room door labeled PLASTIC BOTTLES and a box labeled Recyclables for Jewelry Making (screw-on bottle caps, soda tabs, yogurt/pouch caps).

WHEN: Any time between now and Friday, April 23rd.

Thank you in advance for your help!
- The Earth Day Planning Team
