☐ Orcas Making Waves!
Table to Farm: The Alcott Green Team with the support of the Alcott PTSA has set up a program to collect food scrap waste at Alcott! For several weeks now, 22 classrooms across 5 grade levels and our Quest program are participating in our new “Table to Farm” program. Students in these classes now have the opportunity to sort their left-over food scraps, that would normally end up in the trash, into a special bin that is collected daily and taken to Mrs. Tavares’s house for her two pigs to snack on!
Rather than have pizza crusts, fruit peels, and leftover veggie scraps end up in the landfill, students get to learn about how we can reuse this waste and turn it into something positive. Together we are repurposing an average of 13 pounds of food waste per day. That is roughly 65 pounds of food that is saved from the landfill weekly! Way to go Orcas!
PTSA Reflections: Congratulations to Quinlan for Outstanding Interpretation for Visual Arts (PreK-2nd) at the State level. His piece will now move on to the National competition!
Scripps Spelling Bee: Congratulations to Reyansh who competed in the Regional Spelling Bee in Seattle. Reyansh competed against students from schools across King and Snohomish County and had an impressive 9th place finish.
