Reminder PTA meeting tonight with special guest Beth Terry, author of Plastic-Free….

Hello Jefferson families! Reminder that our next PTA meeting is tonight Thurs 3/22 with special guest speaker Beth Terry, author of Plastic-free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too. Beth will share her journey from self-confessed plastic addict to empowered plastic-free activist (Beth’s talk will begin at 6:00 sharp).

Childcare for Jefferson families (please contact jvloman@hotmail.com if you need it) and food for kids, as well as snacks and “mocktails” for adults will be provided!

Feel free to bring friends from outside the Jefferson community to the talk, but please have them rsvp to loribhess@gmail.com

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

We look forward to seeing you there!
