  1. Hi we’re from the Eco-Club!  Yesterday the Eco-Club visited the large and small lunchrooms to see how well Gledhill students are doing in bringing litter-less lunches.  We saw many students with litter-less lunches and they are entered in the draw for prizes.  Keep it up Gledhill, the Eco-Club will be back next week to check for more litter-less lunches.  Thanks!

  3. Hi, we’re from the Eco-Club!  We were noticing a fair number of reusable containers get left in the playground by kids.  Often they end up broken or put in the garbage.  Students, please make sure that when the recess bell rings to come in, you check to make sure you have everything you brought out with you.  It’s a good idea to put your things in the same place while you’re playing.  Thanks for thinking of the earth!
