April Recycling Challenge

For the month of April, we are challenging all students to participate in the Recycling is Happiness Challenge. We thought this would be fun for all of our Cornerstone Cougars, whether enrolled in Hybrid, DLA, or Independent Study! During this month, students can record how they reduced, reused, or recycled on this Happiness is Recycling Challenge page in celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd.  At the end of the month, your child can turn in their challenge page to the office and receive a small prize. To ensure that we have enough prizes, please take a moment to complete this form if your child would like to participate. This information will be used to prepare prizes. Not to worry if your plans change during the month. 

All my best,
Dr. A
