Hello RES Families!
I just wanted to inform everyone of a new program we
are implementing here at Rosman Elementary School called, “Cans for Cash!” I am starting this program in coordination
with the fifth grade to help raise money for the fifth grade Muddy Sneakers
program. This program is currently free
for all fifth grade students to participate, but the program itself is not
free. The fifth grade teachers and I want to help assure the program can 1) remain
free to students and 2) remain at Rosman Elementary.
Muddy Sneakers has been very beneficial for many
students, including my two children. I enjoy hearing about their out of
classroom and into nature experiences. I also love that the program is local
and that our family can visit the same places regularly. It is always
interesting when one of my children shares a random fact about lichen,
mushrooms, or tree names. My children, like many others, prefer hands on
experiences and this program provides that for them.
Cans for Cash is very simple. All you need to do is
bring in your aluminum cans! I will gather the cans once a week and then when
there are enough to take to the recycling facility, I will turn the cans into
cash. The money will then be donated to Muddy Sneakers. Every penny we earn for
cans will go to them. I am donating my time, gas, and storage to help the
program. I hope you all will partner with me to not only help keep Muddy
Sneakers at Rosman, but also teach our children about recycling and protecting
I also wanted to mention this is not replacing the
Ronald McDonald program. If you are currently saving the can tops for this
program, please continue to do so, as now we can recycle the entire can!
If you have any questions about the program, or want
to help expand the program, please feel free to contact Scott Strickler by
email at email@example.com or call
***We do ask that you do not let children bring cans
for donation on the bus. The bin will be located in the common seating area
between the library and the entrance of the school. Donations can be made
during regular school hours***
