Go Paperless at Your School

By Beth Newingham on April 18, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

Our school is trying to reduce our use of resources by going paperless. Our school’s weekly newsletter (and most classroom newsletters) are sent home via an email blast instead of being printed out and copied for all 334 students. Following the success of the emailed newsletter, our school started using the email blast to disseminate other information to parents, including field trip information, fan-outs, PTO meeting updates, volunteer requests, etc., saving even more paper. Also, when it is necessary to send home a hard copy of a note, only the youngest students or only one student of a family gets a copy.

We've also been recycling our paper since Winter 2008 with a student-run recycling club.
