Reusable Utensil Program Starting This Week!

Starting Thursday January 27, we are switching to reusable utensils in the cafeteria, through a grant from Department of Ecology and City of Bellevue!

We estimate this will save more than 47,000 disposable plastic utensils from the landfill in one school year.

If you see any of these new school utensils at home please send them back to school so they can stay in the cycle. Click through to the PTSA web site for all the details!
