Dear Middle School Families,

Did you know: The average person generates 4.4 pounds of trash each day. To celebrate Earth Day, the Ravenscroft Middle School will be holding a Lunch Trash Challenge on Friday, April, 21. Students should plan on bringing a packed lunch that day and will be eating lunch in their advisories. Each student’s goal is to bring a lunch that contains the least amount of trash as possible–we’re encouraging everyone to make their best effort at using reusable bottles, packaging, and containers! Prizes will be awarded for the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade advisory that generates the least amount of lunch trash.

In addition to our Lunch Trash Challenge, we’ll be working on activities with our advisories to learn more about environmental conservation¬†and¬†everyone will play a part in planting a butterfly garden right next to the middle school!
We’re all looking forward to a great Earth Day celebration! Thank you for your help and support.
