PTA Meeting March 22–Green Team Special Presentation

Hello Jefferson families! Jefferson’s Green Team, in collaboration with the Jefferson PTA, is excited to bring you a presentation by special guest speaker Beth Terry at our next PTA meeting on Thursday, March 22nd from 6:00 – 7:45 in the school library.

Beth Terry, author of Plastic-free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too, will share her journey from self-confessed plastic addict to empowered plastic-free activist.

Have you ever thought about your “plastic footprint?” Take a walk through your house and notice how much plastic has infused our way of life. From plastic-packaged food in the kitchen to toothbrushes and shampoo in the bathroom, from the carpet on the floor to the clothes in our closets (not to mention our kids’ toys!), our world is full of plastic.

Although some plastics make our lives better, much of it is a problem — polluting our oceans and beaches and harming our health with toxic chemicals. But what can one person do to be part of the solution?Join us for an evening of inspiring stories and practical tips about ways to reduce plastic in your home and on the planet.

Also on the agenda:
* PTA Audit & Announcements
* Principal Mary talks about changes for next school year

Childcare and food for kids, as well as yummy appetizers for adults will be provided.

Feel free to bring friends from outside the Jefferson community, but please have them rsvp to loribhess@gmail.com.  If you need childcare, please contact jvloman@hotmail.com

We look forward to seeing you there!
