TONER RECYCLING CENTRE
Our school has recently joined the T.R.C. program to help reduce industrial waste. How can you help? Send any empty ink or toner cartridges from your faxes or computers to school for recycling. What does the school get? When our box is full of empty cartridges we send it away. A cheque will be forwarded to us or we have the opportunity to purchase goods made from recycled items, such as rulers, cups and park bench seats. Each empty ink cartridge could have a value of up to $5.00

DENTAL CLINIC
Winter ills are about again. Fresh fruit and vegetables are rich in Vitamin C. They are safe snack foods for our teeth, as well as providing the body with vitamins and minerals to help fight and prevent infections and sickness.
