Crayola Cares
Edison is re-launching its partnership with Crayola Cares and will be recycling any and all markers and shipping them back to Crayola on a monthly basis beginning in January. Please send markers to be recycled with students to school–and students can drop them in the Crayola Cares box by the art room. Edison’s Green Team will ship them back to Crayola to be re-purposed into new markers. The next drop-off date will be January 13.
