Deerfield’s extraordinary Green Team is moving forward in its efforts to promote environmental awareness through a new recycling program. Over the break, a Recycle Bin was installed in the front of our school next to our advertising banners. Community members are encouraged to drop off any unwanted shoes/clothing/textiles for recycling. The bin is available for drop-offs every day/all day…just place items in the bin and they are picked up at the end of the week! Deerfield will receive a percentage of money back to the school based upon the number of pounds collected. Please limit items to cloth textiles (no toys or other household items please).

enriching and vital support to the Deerfield community at large. Many of our
favorite programs will return this year, including the Reflections, Yearbook, Jog-A-

teacher grants and salary supplements for selective classified staff.
