Attention students: white and tan to go boxes and plates from the dining hall are compostable, which means that they do not go in the trash. Instead, put them in the green buckets marked compost only or stack them neatly on the waste stations around campus. Organic waste, like food waste and our white and white and tan compostable plates and to go boxes, that decomposes in landfills will release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. When organic waste decomposes in compost, it keeps greenhouse gasses in the soil and conserves landfill space. For Mother Earth and your grandchildren: please compost your white and tan to go boxes and plates.

A reminder to SCOPE members to have your recorded books completed and shared by tomorrow’s meeting. If you’re interested in recording a book for local elementary students, we are still seeking Hilltopper volunteers for our ongoing project. See Mrs. Begin and Mrs. Morris for a book, or make a recommendation of your own!


The Bowling Club will meet on Tuesday. The bus will leave Brantview Drive at 3:45 pm. Just a reminder. The price of bowling is $4.00 per game and the fashionable bowling shoes are free. Joke of the Week: I was with my dog Lily yesterday at Dog Mountain. I told her to sit and then I asked her. “Lily, how much is 2 minus 2”. She said nothing. What a smart dog! Have a great day!


Happy Birthday today to Quinn Zou, Luke Steele, and a special Happy Birthday to James Lunnie from the Shea advisory!
